Roman sarcophagus found in London
Published on August 18th, 2017 | by admin0
The 1,600-year-old coffin found near Borough Market is thought to contain the remains of a member of nobility.
Archaeologists have been unable to identify the body as the stone coffin has been left filled with soil after being robbed, experts believe.
The coffin was found several metres underground with its lid slid open, which indicates it was plundered by 18th century thieves.
