    Headline's misleading; the body has been there for approximately six centuries but some of the artefacts for closer to fourteen. The site has been abandoned since the 17th century. On Monday, progress marches on (cough-cough).

    It hurts to know they rushed the excavation so they can concrete over the site! How much history will go undiscovered............
