Archaeologists have recovered from a cliff in Wales in the centuries-old skeletal remains of at least half a dozen people, who have been the victims of a shipwreck.
The remains were found in July and September, and from a burial site on an eroding cliff on the coast to Cwm Nash in Glamorgan. Other remains recovered from the site date back to the era of the British Tudor and Stuart monarchs in the late 16th or early 17th century.
Cardiff University has taken part in the excavations by the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust, Natural Resources Wales and the ascent of the experts, The Adventure Alternative.
ARCHEOLOGISTS DISCOVER ANCIENT FORTRESS OF SECRETS BEFORE IT FALLS INTO THE SEA
“A lot of the skeletons have lost the bone in the sea, but an early analysis of the time and the positions of the individuals, it is revealing that,” said Jacqui Mulville, a professor of bioarchaeology at Cardiff University, in a statement. “There is a young individual, to be buried away from the rest, with the others, are buried next to each other or even be together in the same grave. Our latest thinking is that this is the Tudor, or Stuart, men who are the victims of the shipwreck. We are striving to tell their stories and give their own identity to them, by means of ongoing post-excavation analysis.”

The Experts were faced with a race against time, as a result of the erosion of the coast, and climate change, in order to recover the remaining, according to the University of Cardiff.
