Dig unearths "Black Death" graves

Archaeologists claim they have found a graveyard during excavations for a rail project in London which might hold the remains of some 50,000 people killed by the "Black Death" plague more than 650 years ago. Thirteen skeletons laid out in two neat rows were discovered 8 ft. below the road in the Farringdon area of central London by researchers working on the  Crossrail project.
