Roman-era skeleton found in Northern England
Published on December 17th, 2013 | by Sevaan Franks
Workers digging a sewer trench through a Roman cemetery in northern England have uncovered a well-preserved skeleton.
Because of the position of the skeleton there was also a chance it could be older than Roman, Mr Pole said.
“It was in a crouched or foetal position, possibly mirroring birth and was located within the limits of a Roman cemetery but it has similarities with burials of prehistoric date,” Mr Pole said.
“No grave goods were placed with the burial,” he added.
