In northern England, in the town of Garforth, a lead coffin was discovered containing a 1,600-year-old skeleton believed to have belonged to a Roman aristocrat.
The coffin was located in an ancient cemetery where, in total, human remains belonging to 60 different people from the late Roman period or the early period of Saxon.
According to the researchers, lead coffins are an extremely rare find and prove that the person buried in them belonged to really high social strata.
The exact location of the discovery has not been disclosed, and scientists plan to more accurately determine the age of the find. After carrying out the necessary research, the find is to be put on display at Leeds City Museum.
