Black Death skeletons discovered in London Crossrail dig
More than a dozen skeletons thought to be victims of the Black Death have been unearthed in the City of London.
So far the skeletons of 13 adults have been found under Charterhouse Square in Farringdon during excavation work for the £14.8 billion Crossrail project.
Archaeologists made the discovery 8ft (2.4m) below the road that surrounds the gardens in the centre of the square.
They believe there could be as many as 50,000 plague victims buried in the area.
