Archeologists made an unnerving discovery in Paris within the past two months. Over 200 skeletons were revealed after breaking ground under a supermarket named Monoprix. The discovery would be a tad creepy if there wasn’t a viable explanation for the bodies.
Apparently, the land Monoprix was built upon was used previously as a burial site for individuals that died within the Hospital of the Trinity centuries ago. Tests are being run to determine exactly how the men, women, and children died. However, there were known outbreaks of smallpox and other epidemics around this time frame. According to investigators, entire families may have been buried at the site.
You may be wondering why these bodies were left and interred under a grocery store chain. A local Paris news station told CNN the skeletons should have been relocated to another burial site years ago and most were. Sadly, others seemed to miss the boat.
