Skeletons unearthed in giant UK train line excavation

Work is underway to unearth an estimated 40,000 skeletons from a former graveyard which is being cleared as one of dozens of archaeological projects that will clear the way for HS2, the UK’s new high speed railway linking London with Birmingham and the North. 1,200 skeletons have already been dug up from St James Gardens, next to London’s Euston Station, to make way for the new line’s terminus.
