Over 80 Skeletons, some with Hands Tied behind Backs Found at Building Site

In the News

What a terrible find

The experts are going to carbon date the remains to see when this happened , although they estimate sometime betwwen the romans and the 18th century

One theory is the remains are could be the bodies of criminals who were hanged on the gallows

It seems to have been something happening over a long period , thats why i thought it might be an organised event, like public hangings

I suppose when they look at the bones closer they will be able to see if the necks were stretched or not

telmel, not sure if you have Sky? But if you do I highly recommend Medieval Deaths in Sky History - it's right up your street 🙂
