Monastic cemetery find “unique”, say archaeologists

The discovery of the bodies of 15th century monks has been described as “unprecedented” by archaeologists. The monastic cemetery was uncovered earlier this week by contractors undertaking roadworks in St Andrews, Fife. Experts working on the site have been excited by the find, which they say helps pinpoint the location of a friary lost during the Reformation. They say the remains are those of Franciscan monks who once lived in the area, and have described the find as “unique” due to its town centre location.
