Newly discovered Roman skeleton shakes British history

It’s rare for archeology to be dramatic.  It’s a lot more science than whipping Nazis and running from boulders, and usually one’s discoveries are more on the league of pots and urns than the Arc of the Covenant.  But every once in a while, somebody finds something really big.

The Telegraph reports that this time, that big thing is a skeleton found in Dorset field, Britain, in what used to be a Roman villa.  The quantity and quality of the skeletons is such that the archeologists at nearby Bournemouth University believe it could determine whether those living in British-Roman villas 1700 years ago were, in fact, Romans.  Dead men tell lots of tales, apparently.

Full story at The Telegraph.

Shut your eyes! Don’t look at it, no matter what happens!
