Excavations to be carried out after 50 human skeletons found on Welsh beach

This story Rachael Misstear was recently posted on Wales Online 
"Almost 50 skeletons dating to the 7th and 11th centuries have already been uncovered by archaeologists at dunes in Whitesands Bay, St Davids"
The archaelogical dig at an early medieval chapel should reveal details about life in Wales a thousand years ago.

"Many [skeletons] were in ‘cist’ graves – long graves lined with stone slabs. Child graves were also found decorated with layers of quartz pebbles and limpet shells."
This is another fascinating story. It's incredible what ancient skeletons can reveal to us.
