60 Roman skeletons discovered beneath swimming pool in York

In 2018, there was an amazing discovery in York (England). During renovation works under the hotel swimming pool, human remains were found, dating back to the Roman period in Britain.

The skeletons come from the 2nd, 3rd and 4th centuries CE and belong to both women and men. Scientists say that the deceased was of similar age and social strata.

The find is a short distance from another burial site at Driffield Terrace, where the tombs of 30 decapitated Romans have also been discovered in the past. Some believe that the skeletons may have belonged to gladiators who fell in the arena.
