You missed the great crown jewels robbery of 1303. The jewels were stolen from Westminster Abbey where they had been buried in a sealed underground chamber. The organiser Richard Puddlicott was later caught and hanged. His body was skinned and the skin nailed to the door of the Westminster Chapter House.
