    Why does the BBC think this is news? I saw a documentary about it on the History channel several years ago. I think it was the "History's Mysteries" series.

    (Please note: I'm not blaming wfgodot. It's a new link.)

    Part of Beeb's pro-George III, "whew, we're well-rid of those hungry beggars" stealth campaign, perhaps.
