pirateskullThe remains of a man were uncovered by council workers during survey work for an extension at Victoria Primary School in Edinburgh last year.

The bones were sent to archaeologists and have been dated to the 16th-17th century and could have belonged to a pirate!

Alice, pupil at Manor Leas Academy said, “It is amazing what is buried at schools, I think it’s not very often you find a skull though!”.

    Great scoop Joe. Congratulations on reaching the “front page”. What an exciting find. What if we had an archaeological dig at Manor Leas!!! I wonder what we’d find.
