[28 APR 00] CRIMES, FIRES & ACCIDENTS
Bones Found On Coventry Building Site

Bones believed to be human remains have been discovered at the site of the new Coventry University library.

They were discovered at 10.30am by workman excavating a section of land in Far Gosford Street.

Police were called and the area was cordoned off while investigations were carried out.

A police spokeswoman said that officers were satisfied that they were ancient bones.

Archaeologists at Coventry City Council have been called in to examine the find.

It is believed that there was a Saxon burial site nearby, and the bones might relate to that.

The 16 million building is being built on the site of the old Gulson Road Hospital.

The state-of-the-art library at the rear of William Morris Building in Gosford Street, includes major landscaping to improve the area surrounding it.
