Crypt Hythe Church AL0196_007_02

St Leonard'??s Church, Hythe, Kent. This image shows the ossuary, or bone store, in the vaulted ambulatory beneath the chancel of St Leonard'??s Church. The space had been used to store skulls and other bones disturbed during building work or when new graves were dug. Some 10, 000 bones, including around 2, 000 skulls, dating from the medieval period were arranged on shelves or stacked in piles. The ossuary had long attracted visitors, and the photograph shows advertisements for guides written by the vicar, and a table with what appears to be a visitors'?? book and a donations box.
