I recall seeing some too, though I think they were of the display at Earby. They weren't particularly gruesome, or not to my mind at any rate but then I did do an archaeology degree which included human osteology - I used to be able to reassemble a skeleton, including all the fiddly wrist and ankle bones, but that's another thing I've forgotten how to do over the yearsLaugh

I think I recall seeing some photos on here of the discovery but they seem to be gone now, possibly too gruesome?

It's a fascinating story and I've always fancied visiting the mine.

Only as far as the Historic Photos folder for the mine....
