Traces of Eboracum kept in the Yorkshire museum

Traces of Eboracum kept in the Yorkshire museum

Building operations have, at various dates, laid bare many relics of the Roman occupation of York, and there are undoubtedly many more hidden away below a ground level that has gradually risen with the centuries. Notice particularly a rather pathetic little memento (bottom left) which shows a father and mother, seated upon a couch in an alcove, with a table bearing a loaf in front of them To one side stands their small daughter, to whom this sad monument was raised all those years ago and has survived to this day.
