800-y.o. monk found poking out of Welsh cliff face

Another great Telegraph headline!
The Telegraph wrote:The thigh bones of a medieval monk have been found poking out of cliffs at Monknash in South Wales which was a former burial ground in the Middle Ages.
Although badly damaged and missing their knees, shins and feet, the thigh bones were found after the fierce recent storms caused severe coastal erosion.

Full story HERE.
