Bonn Square skeletons to be reburied

Hundreds of skeletons could be buried beneath Oxford’s Bonn Square, according to the archaeologist overseeing redevelopment work.

Earlier this month the city council launched a £1.5m redevelopment of the square in a bid to tidy up a run-down part of the city centre.

This week, as construction firm English Landscapes started digging up the site with bulldozers, skeletal remains, which could date back to the 12th century, were found on the former burial site.
