Druid grave discovered near Colchester, England

The grave of a 1st century Druid, possibly the first such discovery in England, has been found in Stanway, near Colchester in eastern England. The body in the grave was one of a number of important people buried near the time of the Roman invasion.

Clues, both from artifacts and their placement, have led researchers to believe that the grave was that of an important man and may have belonged to a Druid. They found "The metal rods, possibly used for divining, are in a specific order and near the surgical equipment - scalpel, surgical saw, hooks and forceps."
