Look for the remains of King James I, Queen Joan Beaufort and Queen Margaret Tudor.

King James I of Scotland (1394 - 1437) was assassinated in the city of Perth and was buried in the Carthusian Monastery in the city. Later on his wife and Queen, Joan Beaufort and eventually King James IV's widow and Queen, Margaret Tudor were also buried there. In the 16th century during the Reformation the monastery and the royal tombs were attacked and destroyed. We think that the remains of King James I, Queen Joan Beaufort and Queen Margaret Tudor should all be looked for using documentary evidence, archeoligical evidence, the gender and condition the bones are in, the location they are buried, what they are buried with, facial reconstructions using the skulls, and possible DNA testing. If they are discovered and identified they should be reburied with great honour perhaps in St John's Kirk, Perth. We think they should all be reburied with mediaeval tomb effigies reflecting the time period which they lived in. The city of Perth will no doubt receive new tourism if this project goes ahead and is successful.
