Noble Friends,

Archaeologists from Sheffield University have recently excavated a mass 
grave at Thornton Abbey in Lincolnshire dating from the 14th century. 
DNA tests have confirmed the presence of the plague:

beautiful Tau cross found in one of the graves.

English Heritage has an extensive web site about Thronton Abbey, 
including several interesting illustrations and an extensive history: 

A Wikipedia page also discusses Thronton Abbey:

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
