A 1,700-year-old cemetery with 13 remains has been found beneath a car park in Leicester. Some jewellery and accessories are found along the bodies, which were discovered beneath a car park on Oxford Street.
The site would have been 130m beyond the walls of Roman Leicester. The bodies found are of a mix of ages and gender and there are signs of both pagan and Christian burial within the site.
