news about medieval skeletons  
"Skeletons unearthed by Gloucester Linkages workmen"

and one whose use of "possibly" in the headline confuses me:
"Medieval African possibly found buried in England"

(I mean, he could be possibly medieval, or possibly African, but possibly buried? Presumably that's the part we know for certain.)

They were not certain where they were when they dug him up?

I can only assume that's the case...

Maybe it's a sort of epistemological debate. "We MAY HAVE found him! But really, how can we know?"

"I mean, how does anyone know anything, really? Can anything truly be said to exist, independent of our perceptions of it?"
