Skeleton of young man was found in south Wales

Skeleton of a young man was found in south Wales, face down, with a sword and a silver brooch next to his body. According to researchers, the human remains belong to a Roman soldier (maybe a mercenary) and he could have been killed. Scientists estimated the man’s age at the time of death at 21-25 years.

Due to the fact that nails were found at the top and bottom of the grave, it is assumed that the grave could have been covered with boards. Moreover, large nails located on the back of the neck, arm and between the legs may prove that the man was restrained before his death.
