There have been reports in the British news of a couple finding a 6m high mural of Henry VIII on a wall in their home while they were doing DIY. According to reports, the house in Milverton, Somerset, once belonged to Thomas Cranmer when he was Archdeacon of Taunton. The mural dates back to around 1530 and shows Henry VIII sitting on his throne, with his crown on his head and the sceptre in his hand.
