A medieval cemetery containing at least 20 bodies, half male, half female and all adults with the exception of one child, was unearthed by a team of archaeologists in Lisbon.

The discovery of the ancient burial site was made during a dig in the Santa Maria Maior neighbourhood. Archaeologists believe the necropolis dates from the late 14th to the early 15th century, and that more bodies could yet be found.
