Toe leads to 600-year-old Guernsey burial site

A toe bone sticking out of a grass bank has led to the discovery of a 600-year-old burial site.

The remains were found on Chapelle Dom Hue, a tiny island which measures just a few square metres, off the coast of Guernsey.

Archaeologists say the bones are likely to have belonged to a monk due to the direction and placement of the burial.
