Discovery of a King’s grave, Cranbourne

In May 2005 Shane and Kelly O’Dwyer found a grave using their metal detectors. A few days later they came back to the site on the outskirts of Cranbourne only metres from a disused public toilet. They dug up the grave to find centuries old pots and cutlery and a crown. The media came to photograph the pots and cutlery and to photograph the O’Dwyers standing with their metal detectors besides the pots and cutlery . The crown belonged to a king who’s skeletal remains were of only passing interest to the O’Dwyer’s dog – Terry.
