Construction work in Norfolk unearths Roman cemetery

85 Roman graves have been uncovered at a development site in Norfolk, England.

Among the skeletons, which have been exhumed for further study, there were some which were beheaded after death.

The cemetery is thought to date from the 3rd/4th Century.

The excavation was part of a planning process following an application for the residential development of a site in Great Ellingham.
