The Lancaster tombstone is iconic, dramatic and immediate evidence of the Romans in Britian - and a remarkable new discovery from the world of archaeology. It gives us, in one image, and a brief inscription, the story of an auxiliary cavalryman, of German origins, fighting in the North West of England. Insus was a 'Curator' with his unit and is depicted in full equipment, on a stallion, triumphant over a fallen 'barbarian'. The stone lay buried in Lancaster for two thousand years before discovery in 2005. Following painstaking conservation and reassembly of broken parts it is now the centrepiece of the Roman gallery in Lancaster City Museum, part of Lancashire County Museum Service.
