A Murder in Carlisle!

No, it's not an Agatha Christie mystery but a 3rd century Roman murder victim discovered buried in a well. A new exhibit at Tullie House in Carlisle will feature the skull of a Roman citizen who was "shot in the head and attacked with a sword." The skeleton of "Duncan," so named by archaeologists, was discovered in the 1980s and will be the subject of a facial reconstruction funded by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The exhibit, called 'Into the Hands of the Shades - Death in Roman Cumbria,' will also look at Roman burials and beliefs about death.
