medeival Skull CoventryThe bones found in the Old Grammar School are believed to date back to some time between the 12th and 16th Centuries.

The excavation of the Grade I listed building is part of an £8.5m scheme to restore the building and extend the neighbouring Transport Museum.

Experts described the finds as “surprising”.

The year-long project, which began in March, will see the building restored for use as an exhibition, education and events space.

It is hoped the finds will go on display in the building when the work is completed.

Julian Marsh, the scheme’s architect, said he had been “surprised” by the finds.
