St Illtud's Galilee Chapel, St Illtud's Church, Llantwit Major

Skeletons Uncovered

Contractors on the Galilee Chapel site have made an unexpected discovery: eight full skeletons, located inside and outside the old chapel have been uncovered.

Further bones and skulls have been revealed. Each skeleton takes 3 – 5 days at least to expose properly, archaeologically record and remove.  Further graves have been found outside, two being deep, on to the bedrock, so are probably very old. Further details will follow!
