The Last Resting Place

Strange deaths and burials body found in well

It was in 1965 when the digging for the foundations of the building that went on to become Debenhams in Gloucester city centre came across a Roman road. It was discovered that this road had been resurfaced 6 times. As the surrounding area was excavated, the earth revealed the street grid of a Roman town. A 10 foot deep well was also discovered and at the bottom of this well, there was the remains of a teenage female, who had been dismembered. Surrounding the remains was a severed right arm, a pair of antlers, a horse's skull, all which were surrounded by a collection of large stones.

The body is said to have been from the Dark Ages but I haven’t been able to find out any more information about this grisly find but have contacted the local museum to find out if anything more has been discovered about this macabre burial. I will let you know of any responses I receive.
