Human remains in Fairford found to be more than 1000 years old
HUMAN remains recovered in Fairford earlier this summer have been found to be more than 1000 years old.
Officers from Gloucestershire Police were called to Cinder Lane in Fairford at around 6.40pm on Sunday July 7 after members of the public made the discovery.
The remains were recovered and since then a forensic anthropologist has been examining them to help identify when the individual passed away.
Today it has been confirmed that the remains are that of a woman from Sub-Saharan Africa and are dated between 896AD and 1025AD.
This is, of course, no longer a police matter and it is likely that the remains will be passed on to a museum or university.
