    A very typical feature of the graveyard is the low dividing walls separating off the five burial areas, each the property of different families.

    Roman burial ground

    Roman Burial Ground offers a revealing insight into Roman funeral customs between the 1st and 4th century AD. This period marks the transition from cremation (cinerary urns, altars) to burial (sacrophagi), the latter becoming much more widespread from the begining of the 2nd century.
