Abbey remains to get proper burial


THEY have been languishing in a storeroom for more than 20 years, but finally nine bodies dug up at Eynsham Abbey are set to be laid to rest.
The skeletons were uncovered during a three-year archaeological dig which started in 1989 at the site of the abbey.
They were then kept in a storeroom at the Museums Resource Centre in Standlake until this year, when a local priest started a campaign to return the bodies to their rightful home.
