1,600-year-old human remains unearthed

Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a man, which they believe could be more than 1,600 years old. The team from Northamptonshire Archaeology made the discovery while carrying out investigations on a building site.

A small piece of pottery found alongside the crouched skeleton was used to date the burial to somewhere between the years 43 and 410 – suggesting the body is Roman.
