DISCOVERY OF A SKELETON

On Tuesday, last week, some men engaged in excavating the ground under the flooring of two cottages close to the Fox and Hounds Hotel, Braintree, Essex, discovered a human skeleton about eighteen or nineteen inches below the surface of the ground. No trace of a coffin could be discovered. The length and size of the skeleton point to the conclusion that it must have been that of a full-grown man.
