    Roman cremation in front garden
    I contacted Paul bennet from Canterbury trust and he has collected what he said was a Roman cremation which I found while digging for a new water main pipe in my front garden.there was a red jug almost complete with all the bits, a black jar which was all broken and laying on its side which had the bones in. I did try to contact IOTAS but had no reply so went through Canterbury, I have photos of all finds and Canterbury have the objectives.pplease contact me for more info.
