What buried secret lies beneath the stones of one of England's
greatest former churches and shrines, the Benedictine Abbey of Bury
St Edmunds? The search for the final resting place of King Edmund
has led to this site, beneath which Francis Young argues the lost
king's remains are waiting to be found. Edmund: In Search of
England's Lost King explores the history of the martyred monarch of
East Anglia and England's first patron saint, showing how he became
a pivotal figure around whom Saxons, Danes and Normans all rallied.
Young also examines Edmund's legacy in the centuries since his
death at the hands of marauding Vikings in the 9th century. In
doing so, this fascinating book points to the imminent rediscovery
of the ruler who created England.
