 Middle Ages cemetery discovered in Croatia

Zagreb - A 14th century cemetery was discovered in downtown Zagreb, Croatia, near the city's cathedral during roadworks, the daily Jutarnji list reported on Friday.

Workers were surprised to found human bones only 50 centimetres below ground. Archaeologist Zeljko Zemo confirmed the date of the find saying it was due to erosion of soil down through the centuries.

Zemo said the site was the location of an old church in the 14th century and a small cemetery. Roadworks have been suspended temporarily allowing archaeologists to examine the site, he said. - Sapa-dpa
