you might be thinking that in modern day, 2014, Britain, we've forgotten this feudal nonsense from the middle-ages! We've moved on Into a prosperous, egalitarian secularist society which rewards people based on merit!? Well we haven't!
The news is worrying. Maryam faces charges of insulting the King, assaulting an official (authorities say there was a scuffle when they took Maryam's phone, from which she was tweeting her experience), and running an organisation which named officials who had tortured political prisoners.

It seems there has never been a better time to head outside and start digging up your local car park. Since the bones of Richard III were exhumed in Leicester last summer, archaeology has become more exciting than even two decades of Channel 4's Time Team could have dreamed.
