Enjoying the weather, I dug out an old shrub the other day and found a cemetery: what look to me like a few bones from a small dog and a cat. Today N was in the garden putting in a new plant, and found a skull. So I set to with trowel and brush and retrieved more bones, with the remains of a net bag which might give an identification of date and a few other bits and pieces, but no identification tags. I will report back when I’ve washed and examined the finds, and the question then will be, should I rebury them?
It looks as if the larger beast was buried in the string bag.
A spade depth down and the bones start to articulate, with signs of a small pit.
