There´s a skeleton in our lift

Check it out: That´s what they found, when they dug deeper into the foundations of the Old Latin School to fit in the elevator (lift). Remember, it was originally part of the bigger cemetary of St.Mary´s and there was a bone-house here before the Old Latin School was built back in 1564.

Today those skeletons are in safe-keeping in Halle – and the appropriate authorities watch over them. Further research is expensive, but we´re working on it. Hopefully, you´ll be able to see them up in the Old Latin School one of these days. Hey, they´ve been part of the family here for much longer than me 😉

A big Thank you goes to President Matthew C. Harrison for sharing these pictures.
