Roman mysteries uncovered in Chippenham

The secrets locked in five historic Roman burial urns are being uncovered at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham.

Kelly Abbott, contract conservator with Wiltshire Council Conservation Service, said the dusting away of years of history from the urns has uncovered bones that could be human.

The ancient urns, that date back to the Roman conquest, were found at the site of Linden Homes’ King Harry Lane development in St Albans
