ROYAUME UNI – Cambridge - More than 25 skeletons have been discovered in the centre of the Cambridge University campus, and archaeologists expect to discover dozens or more in the coming weeks. The remains date back to a friary, based in the area between 1290 and 1538. The archaeology project started with the discovery of around 400 skeletons in 2010 at a burial site nearby. Containing about 1,300 burials, including about 400 complete skeletons, it was found as part of the refurbishment of a Victorian building.
CANADA – Toronto - In the fall of 2015, her heart pounding, Karolyn Smardz Frost stood on an excavation site just behind Toronto's Osgoode Hall.,The site, a former parking lot surrounded by plywood barriers, was once part of St. John's Ward, a neighbourhood where thousands of immigrants to Toronto settled throughout the 1800s and into the mid-20th century. Now the area is known as Chinatown. The excavation revealed hundreds of intersecting foundations of homes built and occupied by early immigrants, including many black people who had fled slavery in the American South.
