London's Cross-Rail Development uncovers a "Black Death Pit"


Black Death According to the BBC, 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 be in an area outside the City of London, but its exact location remained a mystery.
Thirteen bodies have been found so far in the 5.5m-wide shaft at the edge of Charterhouse Square, alongside pottery dated to the mid-14th Century.
