Hundreds of people gathered in Bunhill Fields in London, on Sunday, for the unveiling of a gravestone which marks the exact resting place of the poet and illustrator William Blake, 190 years after his death. Blake died in obscurity in 1827. He was buried in an unmarked common grave in Bunhill Fields Cemetery, but the exact site of his burial was not rediscovered until 2006. People laid flowers and lit tealights around the memorial stone
