Twelve skeletons dating back to the time of Richard III have been found by accident by Northern Powergrid and their contractor Interserve.
The first bones were discovered in November 2013 by Northern Powergrid and its contractor, Interserve, on Tadcaster Road, known locally as the Knavesmire.
A team of archaeologists remained present on site at all times and were called on to examine the find and start the process of carefully uncovering the skeletons. After initial excavations the team realised that this discovery was something very unusual.
Meticulous excavation in two trenches revealed 12 skeletons.
Analysis and radiocarbon dating of two of the skeletons found that they could be dated to around the 1460s.
The skeletons were identified as male and mostly aged between 25 and 40 at the time of their death. Two had significant bone fractures which could be evidence of fighting, perhaps associated with professional soldiers.
The skeletons have been handed over to York Archaeological Trust to protect and preserve. Arrangements are also underway to exhibit one of the skeletons as part of the city’s Richard III Experience at Monk Bar in March.
