Roman army's murder victim found


Archaeologists in Kent have found the skeleton of a young girl they believe was murdered by invading Roman troops 2,000 years ago.

The girl was stabbed in the back of the head by a sword and buried in a make-shift grave alongside a Roman camp on the Dover to London road.

The skeleton was discovered during a dig beside the A2 at Faversham.
