Jamie Cameron, Keble MSc student in Archaeological Science, has been involved in research into the question of the identity of a body found in Romsey abbey in Hampshire in October 1839.
As part of the Keble Relics Cluster, Jamie joined with Dr Thibaut Deviese, Dr Georges Kazan and Prof. Tom Higham, and attempted to answer the question of who the remains were. Amongst the candidates are St Morwenna who was the first abbess there, and St Ethelflaeda, who is the patron saint of the abbey.
