Could Boudicca's bones be buried beneath a McDonald's?
It could be the year of great discoveries.
Just weeks after remains found under a car park were confirmed as Richard III and archaeologists have reportedly stumbled on Alfred the Great, now the hunt is on to find Boudicca.#
The grave of warrior queen, who fought the Romans to defend Britain, is unknown - although it is thought that her bones lay near what is now a McDonald's in Birmingham.
Another theory suggests that the flame-haired leader of the Iceni lies beneath either platform eight, nine or 10 at King's Cross Station.
Dr Mike Heyworth, the director of the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), said that experts are on the hunt for her burial place, The Independent reported.
He suggested she would be unearthed in the next few years as Britain's growing number of voluntary archaeologists dig deep.
The CBA says there are more than 2,000 archaeological voluntary groups in the UK, with around 215,000 members.
