    The excavation is closed now, but you can see some of the skelets below on the square in front of the Catharina Church .
    a skelet was found a few years ago from a boy age 14 yrs (Marcus of Eindhoven)who was burried here in medieval times (1300 ac).

    In March 2005 they started digging again because more bodies from that time (1300ac) will be tested by international specialists from all over the world and ...they will do DNA tests which....maybe could deliver information for treatment on aidspatients...

    Nico Arts, the city Archeologist will be in charge of this 1,5 yrs project together with Mick van Son, who was so nice to show and tell Robin 922 and me all about the history of the people who were berried here and will be digged out for research this month.

    This is a big neo-Gothic church, one of the major highlights in the career of architect P.J.H. Cuypers. Especially the towers are nice, they're different but both nicely detailed. The church is usually open so you can take a look inside if you want.

    Eindhoven's centre seems to be fairly new, pleasant shopping area and old church - scaffolding as ever for our visit!
