Still Waters

A burial site containing 75 Roman skeletons has been uncovered beneath a hotel swimming pool in York.

The grade two listed building, known as the Newington Hotel in Mount Vale Drive, is currently being gutted by developers to create seven family homes.

During the renovation of the Georgian building, builders were stunned to find Roman remains of men and women of all ages. 

Some remains, dating as far back as 50 BC, included large copper head pieces that had eroded to leave a green mark on the foreheads of the skulls of more wealthy citizens.

At least the Romans haven't lost their sense of humour!
