I understand the Welsh and Scots didn't think so highly of him.
He wasn't so "saintly" to them.

The core of Westminster Abbey is awe inspiring even if you're not particularly religious, in fact the whole place is well worth a visit or two.

I wonder if they could drill a little hole and lower a camera and light like they use for surgeries ?
On the other hand, maybe it's better to not disturb the trapped air or introduce outside air.

Too cool, and perhaps even cold.

Edward was probably responsible for the Norman invasion in October of 1066 having promised succession to William of Normandy as well as to Harold.

That's Edward the First. A few centuries after Edward the Confessor.

They probably liked him better than they liked William the Bastard.

They did bad things with the remains of regicides.

But the legends live on about the disposal of the Protector's body. The head's location is known -- at least its general locale. But no one is sure about the ... remainder.

The pavement in question. I've been to Westminster Abbey twice. It looks better in person. They usually have this floor covered with a carpet to protect it and you can't walk on it.
