Viking burial site found
ONE of South Yorkshire's most significant archaeological finds ever has been unearthed during work to build a multi-million pound special school.
Experts have discovered the remains of 35 ancient bodies - thought to be Vikings or Saxons - in a burial site which could date back as far as the fifth century.

They have been found as part of site preparations for the construction of the new North Ridge Community School in Adwick, in the grounds of North Doncaster Technology College.

They even provide a helpful photo of what one of the Vikings may have looked like:
