The remains included a possible Norman knight

Thousands of remains were found, with 700 of the better-preserved burials being studied in more detail.

The remains included a possible Norman knight. A Durham University investigation revealed he had sustained leg injuries consistent with a jousting accident.

Mr Boucher said that although the dig took place between 2009 and 2011, it had taken some time to analyse the finds.

"The burials provided some fascinating information on the health and stresses of daily life in the middle ages in Hereford," he said. A number of the remains were "likely" to be Norman, he added.

"The Cathedral Close project was such a great success and we were delighted with the work," said the Dean of Hereford, the Very Reverend Michael Tavinor.

"In helping to uncover more of the cathedral's history, we have solved some mysteries, but possibly created some more."
