The remains of seventeen bodies, discovered at the bottom of a well in the city of Norwich in 2004, were given a Jewish burial in Earlham Cemetery on Tuesday.

The bodies, which were dated to somewhere between the 12th and 13th centuries, were found during an archaeological dig prior to construction of a new shopping center and are suspected to belong to Jews. According to the 2011 BBC documentary History Cold Case: the Bodies in a Well, fractures and other physical evidence may point to violent deaths.
