An ancient Roman coffin is set to be unveiled to the public for the first time, after it was discovered in West Yorkshire in 2022.

The lead coffin had laid buried in a field at Garforth, near Leeds, for more than 1,600 years and contained the remains of a high-status woman.

Analysis later revealed it also contained the partial remains of a child.

West Yorkshire Archaeological Services unearthed the burial ground two years ago, finding the remains of more than 60 men, women and children.
