ARCHAEOLOGISTS who excavated skeletal remains at a Hampshire hospital will have their work show on TV tonight.
Now viewers will get to learn some of the incredible stories behind the skeletons.
One of the skeletons analysed is believed to have suffered a long fall from the rigging of the ship, landing on the deck face first.
The skeleton has a broken jaw as well as five other broken bones. The dig concluded that an estimated 8,000 bodies were buried at the site, many from Nelson’s navy and battles such as Trafalgar.
Nelson’s Hospital: A Time Team Special is on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
