Analysis of twenty-five skeletons uncovered in London’s Charterhouse Square during Crossrail’s construction works in March 2013 have provided evidence of the location of the second Black Death burial ground. It was established in 1348 to take the growing number of dead and is referenced in historical records as being located in what is now modern day Farringdon.
Due to the burial ground’s historical importance to London, exceptional levels of research analysis were carried out on the skeletons to understand the life and death of the inhabitants affected by the Black Death in the 14th and 15th centuries.
