14th century remains give "fascinating insight" into Fenwick history

The discovery of a grave dating to the 13th or 14th century may provide a link to a medieval settlement that existed at West Fenwick, England.

Experts hope that further investigation will reveal a chapel and possibly a medieval tower. Karen Derham, assistant archaeologist, called the discovery a "fascinating insight" into the area's history. "Although there is no known record of a medieval chapel in this area, the burials are on the east-west alignment used for Christian burial and they have been radio-carbon dated to between 1280 and 1400 which fits with the date of the medieval settlement."
