York certainly seems to be the place for interesting skeletons. Thanks to Mark for the link to this Times Online article about a possible gladiator cemetery, and to Sandra for a link to the York Archaeological Trust web pages, cheerfully entitled, ‘Romans lose their heads‘.
More to come from Channel 4, 9 pm next Monday (14 June) when we’re promised ‘Gladiators: Back from the Dead‘. Should be interesting!
14 June is also the start of National Crime Fiction Week, and to celebrate I’ll be teaming up with Adrian Magson for an event at Milton Keynes Library on Wednesday 16th. Between now and then, I’m looking forward to visiting Petersfield, Gosport, Bromham and Bedford – details over on the ‘Diary Dates‘ page.
