Bones found dating back to 1400s
Human remains uncovered on a building site near Doncaster have been dated back more than 500 years.

Police were called to the site on Tickhill Road in Bawtry after builders found a skull and skeletal remains buried about two feet underground.

A police surgeon confirmed the bones were those of a small adult or child.

South Yorkshire Police said they were no longer treating the site as a crime scene after tests showed the bones were more than 500 years old.

Archaeologists are now excavating part of the site to determine its history.
