Another interesting thing the book documents are the tomb chest at Winchester Cathedral. During the Civil War era, they were opened and the bones were thrown around the church. They were gathered and placed back in the chest but in different configurations.
For someone interested in the tombs of Britain's rulers, this book gives the reader an overview of their last resting place. Some portions are more detailed than others, but it is detailed enough to mention even where the tombs of Scotland's early kings are located.
