Super-grisly 'black death pit' found under London tracks3/16/2013
Excavations for the massive Crossrail project in London have unearthed all kinds of archaeological finds, from a Bronze Age transport route to a 55-million-year-old piece of amber. This latest discovery, though, might win the prize for the grisliest: a 15-foot-wide "Black Death pit" filled with the skeletons of plague victims.
