The woman's posh coffin was found a year after the 2012 discovery of the king's remains, the Leicester Mercury reports. She was elderly and appears to have been of high status, notes LiveScience; her bones show that she ate well through her life, and she was found in a lead coffin emblazoned with a crucifix.
She appears to have been buried shortly after a church was completed on the site in Leicester, England, in 1250. She was laid at "an important part of the church," says the dig's head, Matthew Morris.
