7th-century saint's remains unearthed in England?
Catholic World News - August 15, 2011
English archeologists believe that they have discovered the remains of St. Edburga (Edburg) of Bicester, the daughter of a 7th-century pagan king.
Workers uncovered a reliquary as they prepared for a development project in Bicester. St. Edburga had been buried at Bicester Priory. Although her relics were transferred to Belgium in the 12th century, the head of the archeological exploration is convinced that some of her remains were kept at the Bicester site.
