Bremen – Bleikeller

This is certainly something a little different, the Bleikeller or lead cellar. Bodies laid to rest here were mummified because of their surroundings and the cathedral had decided to display the bodies.

The body that was on this tomb has been removed and placed on display. It seems an unusual thing to do.

Below are some of the bodies, they know who some of them were. They include an English Lady of wealth, a German dignitary and also soldiers.
