Theft Most Savage….

If stealing from Pompeii may be considered ill-advised, then what can be said for those who would make off with the sole relic belonging to a deceased queen? Some uncultured vandals recently absconded with Mary Queen of Scots’ golden rosary in a night raid on the museum where it was kept. The museum had only reopened to the public a few days beforehand.

Where is Indiana Jones when we need him? This may not be as serious as hunting down the Ark of the Covenant or pursuing the Holy Grail, but the offense is nearly as insulting as the Nazis’ pursuit of those holy relics. Nothing else that belonged to the Queen of Scots remains in the keeping of any museum on the planet; this is literally the only item she ever touched still extant. The fact that it is a rosary only magnifies the perpetrators’ crime.

The burglary happened the night of Friday, May 21, at 10.30 p.m. Intruders made off with loot worth “in excess of £1 million” according to Sussex Police ($1.4 million).

As reported by the BBC, they “entered through a window and smashed a glass cabinet to grab the items.” An alarm was triggered. It’s especially galling because the castle had reopened to the public just days earlier.
