Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

A large ceme­tery dat­ing back to the 18th cen­tury has been un­earthed in Manch­ester. Al­though his­to­ri­ans ini­tially es­ti­mated that around 130 skele­tons would be found, work­ers on the city’s Metrolink ex­pan­sion pro­ject un­ex­pect­edly dis­cov­ered the re­mains of at least 270 peo­ple while dig­ging at Cross Street. The re­mains will be rein­terred in the city’s South­ern Ceme­tery next year, fol­low­ing ad­di­tional ar­chae­o­log­i­cal re­search. Read the full story on­line at
