Death in Aquae Sulis (Bath)

Weekend visit to Bath just gone, going through the photos I took and this is the one that sticks out.

According to my “notes” cremation was the normal funeral rite until the 3rd  century AD  when burial became popular.

The head in the photo is from a man aged approx 45 years old reconstructed from the remains seen directly below. Handsome chap!
