Roman Tombstone Found in Cirencester Project

18 March 2015

Archaeologists have discovered a unique Roman tombstone whilst excavating on site in Cirencester. The grave appears to contain the remains of a 27 year old woman called Boudica- the inscription of her name on the stone is what makes this tombstone different to the 54 other graves that have also been discovered during the dig on the same site. In Roman Britain, Cirencester (or “Corinium”) was the second largest town after London, which explains why so many graves have been found.

The excavation took place on a scheme for Citygrove, where we are building St James’ Place Wealth Management’s second headquarters. Stace are providing Project Management, Cost Management and CDM Coordinator services on the project.
