18 medieval skeletons to be reburied after discovery during town centre revamp

Eighteen medieval skeletons unearthed during a £1.8 million revamp of a town centre are to be reburied. The remains were found in Bridge Street and Silver Street in Gainsborough during renovation works last summer by contractors working for West Lindsey District Council.

The bones, belonging to 15 adults, two infants and a juvenile, were found an estimated one metre underground. They will be reburied at Gainsborough Cemetery tomorrow.
