Druid 'chieftan' loses court bid; weird WORLD.

A DRUID "battle chieftain" has lost the latest round of a fight to force scientists to return ancient "royal" remains to their original resting place at Stonehenge.

King Arthur, a 57-year-old former soldier from Salisbury, Wiltshire, who changed his name by deed poll, wanted the High Court to review a Government decision to allow experts to keep the remains for testing.
