Nearly four years after the body of King Richard III was discovered under a parking lot, a new search is on for an English monarch under pavement.

On Friday (June 10), archaeologists began a survey of the grounds of the long-closed Reading Abbey, the final resting place of King Henry I, who ruled England from 1100 to 1135. In order to image the

gpr-reading-abbeysubsurface, they relied on ground-penetrating radar (GPR), which uses reflected radar waves to reveal buried structures.

The abbey was shut in 1539, though some of its buildings still stand in ruins. The rest of the grounds lie under a defunct prison, parking spots, a nursery school and a playground.
