Carnary is a "skull-house," or charnel; a vault stacked with bones and skulls of skeletons; as at Grantham, Hereford, Rothwell, Ripon, and Christchurch (Hants), and the Franciscan church at Evora, Portugal. A charnel chapel was built near the west end of the cathedrals of Worcester and Winchester, over a crypt devoted to the pious purpose of preserving human remains disinterred when new graves are formed.
