ROYAUME UNI – Coventry - Shards of pottery, floor tiles and carved stones dating back to the Middle Ages were among finds at a archaeological dig ahead of building work on a new swimming pool. Archaeologists from the University of Leicester dug a trench through the site of the former Christchurch House and Spire House in New Union Street. The work uncovered some finds including floor tiles, pottery and carved stones which still showed signs of 16th century whitewash. The area used to be part of Greyfriars, a Franciscan Monastery closed down by King Henry VIII as part of his reforms to the church. In 1538 most of the monastery buildings were demolished.

POLOGNEHrubieszow Hrubieszów - Completely preserved medieval sword from the 14th century has been discovered at a peat bog near Hrubieszów. This two handed sword was a typical weapon in the 14th century. "It is very light - it originally weighed about 1.5 kg. Today it measures about 120 cm" - added Bartecki. In his opinion the sword was very well made; it is well balanced, perfect for fencing. In the coming days archaeologists will go to the place of discovery. They intend to carry out limited excavations. This could shed light on the circumstances in which the weapon ended up in the ground. Scientists hope to discover the missing elements of the knight's equipment.
