Many will not be aware that the road junction between Pound Street and Bartholomew Street / Newtown Road lies over a mediaeval cemetery. Over the years a number of excavations have uncovered remains, most recently during the junction enhancements in 2004.


The contractors for the 2004 excavations, Oxford Archaeology, uncovered a large number of skeletons. Further study of the skeletons by tonight's speaker revealed much of interest.
