Excavations for London’s Crossrail project have unearthed bodies believed to date from the time of the Black Death.

A burial ground was known to in an area outside the city of London, but its exact location remained a mystery.

Thirteen bodies have been found so far in the 5.5 metre wide shaft at the edge of Charterhouse Square, alongside pottery dated to the mid-14th Century.

Analysis will shed light on the plague and the Londoners of the day.

The one thing that struck me, they were buried before the mass availability of sugar. A Brit with perfect teeth.

That's so funny but true.

I was also wondering if there are any problems associated with long dead body parts and contamination.
Will we be seeing Shaun of the dead walking the streets of London ?
