Doesn’t it just want to make you write a novel?

This is just so cool:

Skeletons uncovered in friary dig (in a Scottish city)

Archaeologists in Perth have uncovered more than 50 skeletons at the site of a medieval friary.
The team is excavating land at the corner of Riggs Road and Jeanfield Road before retail units are built.
As well as the bones, the team has discovered pieces of grave slabs, window glass and further evidence of the 13th century Carmelite friary.

Here’s the kicker: “Probably the most unexpected thing is the amount of burials that we found that are all post-Reformation – that means they’re all after the friary’s gone – because there was no record of this site being used for burials that late on.
“So, I’ve no idea what they’re doing here, but there’s certainly quite a few of them and they seem to be buried in family groups.”

    Yeah, that’s what I meant.

      There is a way to edit your posts, you know.

      Are you going to delve into historical fiction next? šŸ™‚

        No, but I’d love to read a book about that, like a MISTRESS OF THE ART OF DEATH for kids.

  2. Uh, oh, you’re not getting sidetracked from your WIP are you? Happens to me all the time!
