The remains of a girl stabbed in the head by a Roman sword has been found in Kent, England.

Dr Wilkinson said that she had been between 16 and 20 years old when she was killed, and her bones suggested that she had been in good health.

He also believes the body had then been dumped in what looked like a hastily dug grave.

“She was lying face down and her body was twisted with one arm underneath her body. One of her feet was even left outside the grave,” he said.

The burial site was just outside the Roman town, with cemeteries close by.
