For #MusGif we have created two animations.  The first is of ‘Ophelia’ our facial reconstruction of a Roman women who was excavated at Cow Roast during 1972. Affectionately named Ophelia she was aged between 25 to 30 years old and was uncovered just over two feet from the surface.  During the Roman period her grave would have been a very shallow 18 inches from the surface.  The site is that of a Romano-British settlement, which grew up alongside the Roman Road running from St-Albans to Cirencester.  To find out more about the dig at Cow Roast, click here to read our article.


The second gif for #MusGif is of our model of Gadebridge Roman Villa.  This was the largest Roman Villa discovered in the Dacorum area and was originally discovered in 1963.  The villa sat on the slope opposite Gadebridge Park.  To find out more about The Gadebridge Roman Villa, click here to read our article.
