Archaeologists have uncovered the remains of a 'massive, muscular woman' who may have been a female gladiator during the Roman occupation of Britain.
The woman was buried in an elaborate wooden coffin with iron straps and copper strips in Credenhill, Herefordshire - close to the headquarters of the SAS.
Her remains were found in a crouched position in an area thought to be a suburb of the nearby Roman town of Kenchester. More here.
