Also uncovered this March was this mass grave in London -
" Archaeologists hope to shed light on the DNA signature of the Black Death plague after finding what they believe to be a mass grave under central London.Archaeologists said on Friday they had found a graveyard during excavations for a rail project in London which might hold the remains of some 50,000 people killed by the bubonic plague more than 650 years ago.
Thirteen skeletons laid out in two neat rows were discovered 2.5 metres below the road in the Farringdon area of central London by researchers working on the 16 billion pound ($23 billion) Crossrail project.
Historical records indicated the area, described as a "no man's land", had once housed a hastily established cemetery for victims of the bubonic plague which killed about the third of England's population following its outbreak in 1348. "
