Saw this article today and thought many here might enjoy it.  Researchers in western England  have found the body of a 13th century knight who killed by a single sword blow to the back.  They speculate he was Geoffrey Dutton a prominent local.  How he received the mortal wound  “that may have left him alive for several hours, yet unable to walk” is uncertain.  I see a book plot in there somewhere.  What do you think?
