Skeletons are pictured at the site where eight mass graves, with more than 200 skeletons, were found under the Monoprix Reaumur Sebastopol store in Paris March 10, 2015 . The discovery, made during renovation work in the cellar of the branch of Monoprix, has revealed what experts believe are victims of a sudden illness resembling an outbreak of Bubonic plague and could prove useful to historians studying burials in the Middle Ages. Eight communal graves have so far been discovered, seven small plots and one much larger one in which 150 skeletons have already been unearthed. The supermarket stands on the site of the cemetery of the Trinity hospital, founded in the 12th century and destroyed at the end of the 18th, and experts say the organisation of the graves points to a "mass mortality crisis".
