Chained skeleton from a Roman burial ground
Chained skeleton from Roman cemetery

In 2013, the remains of a Roman cemetery were found in south-eastern France. This year, hundreds of Roman graves were discovered, among which were chained skeletons.

The burial ground is located approximately 250 meters from the remains of the Roman amphitheatre of Saintes, in the Charente-Maritime department, on the west coast of France. This clearly suggests that the graves were the burials of people who took part in the arena shows: convicts, slaves and gladiators.
