You'll be needing to go to Rouen, in France, I'm told...

Yep, it's in the right place...and according to Wiki Richard's brain was buried at the abbey of Charroux in Poitou, his heart was buried at Rouen in Normandy, and the rest of his body was buried at the feet of his father at Fontevraud Abbey in Anjou.
Seems like he's a bit all over the place  8)

Thanks for the info - seems he was a bit of a liability - apart from spreading himself about a lot- he cost the country a King's ransom (43 tons of gold) to get him out of hock!
