Twelve skeletons found in Bicester car park

Twelve skeletons have been found under the car park at a Bicester (Oxfordshire) church.

The bones were found by builders who are midway through constructing the John Paul II Centre in the grounds of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, in the Causeway.

Archaeologists have exhumed the remains and believe the skeletons date from late Anglo-Saxon times, between 700 and 950 AD.
