In the news : Storm-eroded beach uncovers ancient skeleton

It may well be worth investigating beaches eroded by recent storms, you never know what could turn up. But remember, if you do find human remains, you have to stop digging and report the remains to the police, just in case they are not so ancient... http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/storm-ophelia-ireland-ancient-skeleton-skin-on-waves-sea-coast-kilmore-quay-county-wexford-a8011346.html

Interesting, always heard after the storms down to the black sand is when you hit the beaches, true enough!
