Posted by admin on Jan 19, 2011

Twelve skeletons have been found under the car park at a Bicester church. The bones were found by builders who are midway through constructing the John Paul II Centre in the grounds of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, in the Causeway.

Archaeologists have exhumed the remains and believe the skeletons date from late Anglo-Saxon times, between 700 and 950 AD. The car park is believed to cover part of a Saxon church site, dating from between 410 and 1066AD.
