The 600-year-old skeleton of a monk?

The 600-year-old skeleton of a monk?
trefwoorden: Gloucester - scelet - 15e eeuw - monnik
Six Hundred years ago - even before the tower of Gloucester's famous Cathedral was built - this man was laid to rest in a grave outside the then thriving Llanthony Priory.
He lay there undisturbed, until this week when archaeologists surveying the area in preparation for the Gloucester Quay's regeneration scheme uncovered his skeleton. It is thought the remains from Medieval times could belong to a monk or another member of the priory. The skeleton was discovered lying between the remains of the old priory and the Gloucester to Sharpness canal near the Business Park on Llanthony Road.
