Roman child and houses unearthed in Dorchester

The remains of a Roman child have been uncovered by construction in Dorchester, England.

Neil Holbrook, archaeology consultant to Simons Group, said: “During their initial excavation Wessex Archaeology uncovered the remains of a Roman child, not an uncommon find in a Roman town as bodies of children were often buried inside the settlement.

“Stone foundations of roman houses, painted wall plaster and coins have also been found.”
