500 graves discovered in Monastic ruins

More than 500 graves of Cistercian monks and lay brothers have been discovered at one of the largest monastic ruins in the country.

CHR Comment: The persons buried were carefully separated from one another, a practice which the archaeologists attribute to belief in the bodily resurrection of the dead.
