Medieval human remains could be lying underneath an area of land proposed for a new £1 million building at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, archaeologists have claimed.
A report by Shropshire Council’s Archaeology Service is recommending that a field evaluation is carried out to determine exactly what is below a piece of land at the college in Priory Road.
The area earmarked for the building is thought to have once been part of a cemetery for the Augustinian Friary, known as the Austin Friars, which established its first house in Shrewsbury in about 1254.
