We were studying the skeletal remains of Roman bodies from a cemetery in the nearby village of Dunstable. If I remember correctly, they were from the 1st or 2nd century A.D.
|The first skeleton we studied (and handled!) a 25 to 30 year old woman.|
|Her head and torso.|
|Pelvis, sacrum & toe-bones. Apologies for the bit of spine below the sacrum!|
|Skull of a man.|
|The front of the man's skull. Notice the brow-ridges?|
|The top of the femur - unfused. This is on an adolescent skeleton.|
|More un-fused bones.|
