Finds around Lincoln

This comes weeks after a Roman coin and bone fragments were found at The Lawn in Lincoln during preparation work for the new RW Stokes & Sons head office.

The skeletons of two Roman infants and an adult were also found while work was carried out to prepare the ground for the University of Lincoln’s new Sarah Swift building on Brayford Wharf East.

Artefacts dating as far back as Roman times were discovered in Lincoln during works to create a new £22 million East West Link Road through the city.
