Human skeletons found in Glastonbury

Within the past few weeks skeletal figures have been springing up all around Glastonbury town centre, and while these may be neither the result of macabre occult practices or from someone digging up the bones of King Arthur and Guinevere from the Abbey grounds, the reason for them is still a mystery to many.
A skeleton in the High Street
You see these are graffiti skeletons which have been stencilled on various alleyways, lamp posts, BT cabinets and other street furniture across the town. The first one I spotted was actually in the High Street outside the Labyrinth bookshop where it was overshadowed by the 3 large stick figures painted on the wall of the Cancer Research shop behind. When, a couple of days later, I spotted another adjacent the giant Day of the Dead mural just off Northload Street and then a third in the St. John's car park, I decided to go on a little walk around the fringes of the town and in an hour found several more. Make no bones about it; it was akin to a skeletal treasure hunt! Nevertheless I don't know how many there are in total and there could be many more. And while they may be appearing across the town in 'Banksy' style cover of night (just to make it all the more spooky and mysterious), they are certainly adding a little drama to some of our more mundane surfaces.
Has anyone spotted these and if so do you know the reason behind them? Let us know below.
