King Edmund under the tennis court?

King Edmund of England, later St. Edmund after being shot by Viking raiders in the 9th century, might be buried under the tennis courts at Bury St Edmunds, once the Abbey graveyard. After Richard III, some historians would like to know.

"Henry VIII didn't like the power and wealth of this abbey so sent his men here to desecrate it," said Sarah Friswell, of St Edmundsbury Cathedral. "But the monks who were looking after the body of St Edmund would have known the men were coming to close the abbey down. It's possible that in the middle of the night they took the body out of the shrine and re-buried Edmund somewhere here. There may be a grave set aside, noticeably different, that of the king."
