Archaeological Investigations Ltd carried out the excavation of the Cathedral’s extensive cemetery in order to allow for the renovation of the Cathedral Close. Rubicon Heritage acted as Osteoarchaeological Consultants, and produced an ‘Excavation and Post-Excavation Policy’ document and method statement for the recovery of over 3,000 inhumations and the processing and analysis of over 700 skeletons. Rubicon also designed a project specific skeleton recording sheet and database, as well as carrying out site visits and liaison meetings.
