    In 574 Bonifatius was murdered near Dokkum. It is an established fact of history, for many of us part of the history lessons at school.

    But what was it that brought stubborn old Bonifatius to Dokkum? What kind of man was he? And how did he actually die? To unravel those mysteries we travel to Dokkum, where history professor Dick van der Galiën and Lammert de Hoop from the Chapel of Bonifatius reveal possible motives and the circumstances of the death of a remarkable man.
