      Terrible!

      I have sent the link to professora Gisela Ripoll in Barcelona. Maybe she can stop it? At least there is a chance.

This is located in a neighborhood of Vicalvaro, Madrid. Now the government has declared "irrelevant" and "little interest" such finding, as it plans to build apartment blocks above. The gothic bones have been taken away and the plan is to destroy them, and all the possessions and metalwork found therein because, as commented again, there's no "interest" among the public administration for the finding preservation.
