Doubts over the legend of King Edmund
A new theory has cast doubt on Suffolk's claim to be the home and resting place of the martyred Saxon King, Edmund.
The town of Bury St Edmunds in the old borough of St Edmundsbury comes from its connection with the king. His statue stands outside the town's cathedral close to where legend says his remains are buried.
But new research into the story claims Edmund was not buried in Bury at all. In fact, Edmund was really an Essex boy.
