Product description

This exceptionally rich aristocratic burial at Folly Lane, St Albans, has thrown totally new light on the early history of the Roman town. The evidence recovered for the elaborate rituals surrounding the burial, and the sacred area in which it was located, has also given a new insight into Verulamium as a cult centre. There is full discussion of the wider implications of this exceptional site, as well as the evidence from the excavation and detailed specialist reports.
