Five medieval skeletons found in Mickleham

Construction work on a new vestry at St Michael's Church in Mickleham, England has led to the discovery of five graves dating from at least the 15th century, one belonging to a small child. The graves are believed to mark the location of the medieval churchyard.

Experts believe that the proximity of the remains to the walls of the church mean that these were people of some status. St Michael's Church was built in the late 10th century and is listed in the Domesday Book.
