‘Medieval’ Skeletons Found in Kempsey Flood Defence Work

Posted by admin on Aug 1, 2011

Eight skeletons have been found in a Worcestershire village where flood defences are being built. About 12 graves were found in Kempsey by the Environment Agency when they were digging trial trenches as part of an archaeological excavation.

The skeletons, thought to be medieval, are being exhumed and the remains will be recorded before they are reburied. It is thought that the bodies were originally buried at St James Church, which was built in the Norman period.
