This time, 13 burials of different religious traditions from the 4th C AD, again under a car park, again in Leicester.

Not unusual to find things under car parks. They tend to be waste ground, made into rough car parks and them formalised, so not a lot of ground disturbance.

It's also not unusual to find things in city centres, but the opportunity to go below foundation levels is rare.
.... or I could be completely wrong.
