Thanks for that bakkar.

Absolutely fascinating. It shows how much understanding can be gained by using modern technology and logical reasoning after an archeological discovery.

One thing stands out for me. Were they actually buried? As they were found inside a dry moat in the ruins of St. Louis Castle in Sidon, wouldn't the bodies have just been thrown into the moat?

It would have been far quicker than digging a huge ditch for them.

And far more practical, if King Louis IX found that due to difficult circumstances he was short of time.
