Centuries of History Right Under Our Feet
Richard III is one of Great Britain’s most famous, and most notorious kings. He was killed in 1485 at The Battle of Bosworth Field during the pivotal “War of the Roses“. Historians know that he was buried at Greyfriars Church. The only catch is, they haven’t been sure exactly where Greyfriars Church was…until now…
Archeologists have announced that they believe that they have found the location of the Medieval church under, of all places, a modern parking lot.
One of the things I absolutely love about Europe is the centuries of history that you can literally see around every turn. But we also shouldn’t discount our own history here in New Jersey.
As we talked about on the most recent episode of Ocean County Paranormal, we have amazing history right here in our own backyard in New Jersey. When teams from Monmouth University excavated at the White Hill Mansion in Burlington County, they found artifacts from the 20th century all the way back to prehistoric, Native American pieces. (If you didn’t get a chance to check out the episode, click here to see some of the artifacts that were dug up!)
