About 40 skeletons have been uncovered by archaeologists at the site of a Roman cemetery in Gloucester.
The discovery was made during a dig at the former Gloscat site at Greyfriars in Brunswick Road, ahead of a housing development being built.
It has been described as one of the most significant archaeological finds in the city in the past 30 years.
The skeletons could end up in the care of Gloucester museum after scientific tests have been carried out.
Stuart Joyce from Cotswold Archaeology said: “We’re just outside the walls of the Roman city of Glevum and this would have been the Roman cemetery associated with the city.
