Look out for my article on the murder of King Edward the Martyr ('A One Thousand Year Old Murder Mystery') over at Royal Central http://www.royalcentral.co.uk/blogs/a-one-thousand-year-old-murder-mystery-17416.
On 18 March 978 the teenaged King Edward set out for Corfe to visit his stepmother, Queen Elfrida, and half-brother, Ethelred. He never made it into the building. For the first time, find out just who was responsible for this ancient crime. You can also read more about the murder, and Queen Elfrida, in my book: Elfrida, The First Crowned Queen of England.
