Several news stories have circulated in the past few days claiming that the pelvis bone of King Alfred the Great has been discovered in a box in a storeroom at Winchester City Museum. However, a closer reading of the story indicates that bones MIGHT be those of the King of Wessex, Mercia and East Anglia.
In fact, the bones were excavated from the grounds of Hyde Abbey in Winchester, then kept in a box in a storeroom at Winchester City Museum since 1999. Many other bones were excavated at the same time. Carbon dating has since verified that the pelvis bone dates from 895 to 1017. The other bones found nearby apparently were newer.
Given the location of the bone, it is probable that it is that of a king. However, since the age can only be narrowed to a range of 122 years, the bone might be that of King Alfred or of his son Edward the Elder. Then again, there is a possibility that it might not be that of a king. Indeed, Alfred's body was known to have been moved at least once after New Minster in Winchester, his first burial place, was demolished in the early 12th century.
