Human Remains, Torksey Lock



Reference Name MLI97633

Name:
Human Remains, Torksey Lock

Summary:
Human remains found at Torksey Lock.

Location:
TORKSEY, WEST LINDSEY, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
Fragments of human remains including skulls, long bones, pelvis and vertebrae, both adult and juvenile, were identified after a call out from the police on the 12th March 2010. The bones probably came from an Anglo-Saxon or medieval burial site and may have been associated with the nearby medieval settlement at the scheduled monument 137. A member of the Historic Environment Team has analysed the bone and the report is in the parish file. The photographs are on the computer system at the HER. {1}

Further human remains were recovered in April 2015, after the site was disturbed by badgers. The remains included long bones from at least 3 (and probably more) individuals, and were from adults, juveniles and infants. The assemblage included a largely complete female skull, and several pelvis bones, one of which could be identified as female. {2}
