Bones discovered in 1866 walled up in St David's Cathedral, West Wales were thought possibly to be those of St David and his companion St Justinian, both of whom died in the late 6th or early 7th century. Examination and radio carbon dating of the bones suggested that these were not from St David nor St Justinian. Some of the bones could be the remains of St Caradoc, a 12th century hermit. It is likely, however, that the bones are remains of clergy who, for reasons not yet understood, were re-interred into the wall.
