This story is a couple of months old, but I didn’t see it until now. Thought it was interesting and that I would post all the same. The bones have been buried for eight centuries, so I figured being a couple of months late on the news is not all that important. Timeliness in archaeology is a little different than timeliness in other news, I think.
From the Huffington Post:
Archeologists this week announced the discovery of an unidentified medieval knight’s skeleton buried along with several other bodies under a Scottish parking lot.
The knight — or possibly nobleman — was uncovered during construction work, according to The Scotsman. Also found was an intricately carved sandstone slab, several other human burial plots and a variety of artifacts researchers believe are from the 13th-century Blackfriars Monastery.
