Rare Medieval Priest Burial Discovered at Lincoln Cathedral, England

A rare medieval priestly burial was among over 50 burials unearthed by archaeologists at Lincoln Cathedral.

One of the many complete skeletons found is believed to be that of a medieval priest, who had been buried in the area that is now the building’s West Parvis.

The priest had been carefully buried with a pewter chalice and paten, used during communion and key symbols of the work of the priest. Similar examples have been dated to as far back as the 12th and 13th centuries.
