The team found all nine of the medieval individuals from the pit who were analysed were male, but only three hailed from western Europe.
Four of the remains were genetically very similar to modern-day Lebanese people, suggesting the men came from the area. The other two men were found to have a mix of European and near east ancestry, suggesting they might have been the offspring of earlier crusaders or other Europeans who travelled to the area to trade and settle.
Further work helped to shed light on the ancestry of these two men, with one probably having a parent from what is now Lebanon and another from somewhere in Europe. The researchers say the results suggest either the dead from both sides of a battle were buried in the same grave, or that people from the area took up arms to fight with the European soldiers.
