London rail work unearths thousands of skeletons from BedlamThey came from every parish of London, and from all walks of life, and ended up in a burial ground called Bedlam. Chief archaeologist Jay Carver says the Bedlam dig could be the most revealing yet.Bedlam cemetery opened in 1569 to take the overspill as the city's churchyard burial grounds filled up.Scientists should be able to compare the bacterium found in Bedlam's plague victims with the 14th-century samples, helping to understand whether the disease – which still infects several thousand people a year – has evolved over the centuries.Sixty archaeologists working in shifts – 16 hours a day, six days a week – will spend about a month removing the remains.
