Henry VIII's Lost Chapel Discovered Under Parking LotBreaking News
Generations of British monarchs worshipped at the lost chapel, including Henry VIII, the Tudor king who had six wives.
The ancient tiled floor emerged by chance when a bulldozer's bucket scraped against some brickwork three weeks ago.
Since then careful digging by archaeologists has revealed the eastern walls of the chapel and a ten-foot-by-five-foot (three-meter-by-six-meter) area of floor covered in a checkerboard of what were once black and white glazed tiles.
The area was once on the grounds of the Palace of Placentia, which was demolished in the late 1600s.
