Interesting find....

"But what makes the find so exciting is that we seem to have a tombstone actually associated with the physical remains of the individual it records– so we actually know her name.

“We think this is unique in Britain – it is the sort of thing archaeologists only find in places like Pompeii.

“The tombstone dates to the 1st or 2nd centuries AD.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
