Roman graves uncovered in Canterbury
By Sian Napier in KentOnline
Archaeologists have uncovered an ancient burial ground in Kent where around a hundred people were laid to rest.
The site - dating back to the late Roman era - is on the former Hallets garage site in Canterbury's St Dunstan's.
Experts have found hardly any grave goods and since most of the bodies are lying east/west they are believed to be mainly Christian.

"We have found some very nice Anglo-Saxon loom weights and the remains of major buildings along the St Dunstan's frontage," he said.
"The site was developed from the Anglo-Saxon period onwards and there were some very deep properties here, some going back 90ft.
"Some had deep back gardens and we have found cess pits and wells."
