Just seen that Cardiff Uni have released results of a study of burials at Worlebury... excavation practised, and isotopic analysis showed that burials of people born there and from Med/Iberian peninsula. Was in Weston Mercury today, sorry can't do link. spencer Posted by spencer

Ooh, thanks Spencer, will have a look for that.

Bloody foreigners, coming over here and creating seaside settlements.
