What were their lives like?
Archaeologists have excavated several Roman cemeteries. The evidence gives
us an insight into how Roman Londoners lived and died.
Most people died between the ages of 26 and 45.
Few skeletons show evidence of violent injuries, suggesting that Londinium
wasn't a particularly dangerous place.
Most people probably died of old age or infectious disease.
Few people had either a very rich or very poor diet, though their teeth
were often very worn.
After comparing skeletons from Londinium to those from elsewhere in Britain
archaeologists believe that most Londoners probably originated here.
