Medieval Charnal House Restored in English Basement

A 14th century English home, owned by a lawyer, has a secret in its basement: It is the final resting place of some 10,000 of London's dead.

The rare building, a "consecrated store for bones from the cemetery at Spitalfields" in London, has been restored by English Heritage. The remains were discovered in 1999 and are believed to come from the time of the plague in London.
