Three skeletons found at Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal

The skeletons of two adults and one teenager have been unearthed at the Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal.

“From their bones and teeth we can determine their sex, age and size,” said bio-archeologist Gerard Gagne.

The discoveries come thanks to excavation work carried out by Bell to lay new lines in front of the Basilica. Contractors knew they would encounter the ancient foundations of the Notre Dame Church, which was built in 1672 and sat near where the basilica is now.
