Medieval skeletons found underneath parking lot

Archaeologists working in Bawtry, South Yorkshire, England, have unearthed dozens of skeletons dating to the 14th century. The skeletons are of all ages and are thought to be interred in a formal cemetery, possibly belonging to a hospital that was once thought to exist on the site.

Because Bawtry was a port city, researchers think that some of the remains may be foreign. After a detailed study of the skeletons, the remains will be reburied at a new site. [photo]
