Summary

The macabre discovery made in 2004 by archaeologists excavating a plot of land, comprising the remains of over 80 battle-scarred skeletons. Pottery found among the bones dated the burials back 2,000 years to the founders of York - the Romans - but the vast number of bodies buried in the same plot - and the multiple decapitations was unlike any Roman burial site archaeologists had hitherto uncovered.
