The Stone of Scone (aka the Stone of Destiny) was once used in the coronation of the Kings/ Queens of Scotland (and later England).
In 1298 the stone was taken to Egland by king Edward the 1st as the spoils of war, where it remained until 1950.
On Christmas day of 1950, four Scottish students drove to Westminster Abbey to steal the stone, but it broke in half during the removal. They buried the larger half before returning to retrieve it later and taking it back to Scotland. The search for the Stone of Destiny proved unsuccessful for an entire year, kept safe in Abroath Abbey under the protection of the Church of Scotland until it was eventually discovered and sent back to Westminster Abbey in England.
However, due to the political unrest in 1996, the British Government decided that the stone would be kept in Scotland when not used in coronations, and has been kept in Edinburgh Castle alongside the Crown Jewels of Scotland since.
I’ve been doing this 12 years and was very fortunate very early on and got some great work, and then I couldn’t get a job. I went through periods of 6-7 months with being out of work, so the idea of regular work for me is thrilling. The fact that I love this show [Daredevil] and being on it and I was so impressed with the execution and the resolve of the creators is a bonus, and the fact that it’s been well received obviously makes you feel very good. It’s funny, people say: ‘Are you worried about being on a hit show?’ No, it’s the fucking dream. – Charlie Cox
