In our Medieval classes, we mentioned the story that Attila the Hun was buried in a three coffins made of gold, silver and iron, and then buried below a river. One student asked if there is a chance of ever finding this coffin, which, if the story is true, should be somewhere in Hungary (or, just the gold!).
Even without such an elaborate burial, there is always a chance for discovery. King Richard III, who died in 1485, was recently found in a parking lot! We’ll learn more about Richard in our upcoming late spring Renaissance class, but you can read about the discovery here!
