There seems to be a lot of activity at the Old High School Yards. Rumour has it that they have discovered the tomb of a thirteenth century knight.

Ah, so Leicester is not the only area with newsworthy buried bones.

There was a piece in The Evening News at the end of January, but it does not mention knights or tombs.

The 'knight' has been 'moved on' now. The grave-slab is in very good condition, being in two pieces and with quite intricate carvings. Considering there was an enormous crane sited over the top of the grave for quite a time, it's remarkable that it hadn't completely collapsed.

This piece mentions the knight and Blackfriars monastery. There are a couple of good pictures too
