Archaeologists from the Western University of Timisoara (UVT) have discovered a collective grave at the building site of a future school campus.

The grave was found to contain the remains of six adults and one child, believed to have been victims of a major plague outbreak in Timisoara.

Around the child's neck was a Cross of Lorraine, which has two horizontal bars, and a pendant depicting  the Franciscan saints Delphina and Elzear, known as the patrons of newlyweds, lepers, and the poor.
