Time Team and students aid in investigation of medieval hospital

The South Yorkshire town of Bawtry, England, became a center of archaeological interest recently when excavation of a disused car part revealed a dozen skeletons dating to the 14th century.

Experts believe that the burials were related to a hospital run by monks which cared for the sick, the elderly and children. Archaeologists from Sheffield University headed the project and were aided by the Time Team and a crew of 20 students.
