Archaeology horror: Gruesome discovery uncovers thousands of bones under medieval church

Archaeologist Dr Aleksandra Pudło said: “We found mostly hand bones, spine elements, forearm bones and many more.”

The bones most likely belonged to men, women and children aged 20 to 70.

And among them were the remains of at least six unborn children, which suggests heavily pregnant women were laid to rest under the church.

After analysing some 2,600 bones, Dr Pudło determined the archaeologists have uncovered the remains of 64 different people.
