Try weeding these…

The View from my daily commute to work includes the wonderful image of these 3rd-4th century Romano-British gritstone sarcophagi, excavated from under the modern Railway Station in the 1890s, reburied in part as part of the historical Museum Gardens. Lovely stuff.

    I’m sure there’s quite a market for things like that for gardens – lucky someone hasn’t tried to pop them into the back of a lorry!

    Amazing!! Studying ancient history must be so different in Europe (vs. North America), where you can actually see evidence left behind on a day-to-day basis!
