Relic of murdered archbishop Thomas Becket on England 'pilgrimage'

From The Daily Mail-

A relic of Thomas Becket is to be returned to England for the first time in 800 years in a week-long commemoration of the murdered archbishop.

The fragment of bone, believed to come from Becket's arm, is held by the Basilica of Esztergom in Hungary.

It will travel from his birthplace in London to Canterbury Cathedral, where he was murdered in 1170, as part of a seven-day "pilgrimage".
