Episode 3 "Friends, Romans or Countrymen"
Julian Richards joins a team excavating a large sarcophagus from a location near Bristol which was unearthed by a bulldozer-operator.
Clearly Roman in date and complete apart from cracks in the stone of the sarcophagus that threatened to break apart during lifting operations, the excavation of this intact but weighty object necessitated the construction of a special lifting frame.
Back at the excavation HQ, the sarcophagus is excavated slowly and steadily (as it should be) to glean as much evidence from it as possible.
The reconstruction of the buried man’s face is completed using computer technology.
