An archaeological excavation was carried out at Sydney Gardens, Bath following the discovery of a stone sarcophagus during groundworks in 2021. The resulting project represents the first sarcophagus and cremation deposits archaeologically recorded in Bath during the modern era. This lecture focuses on the two individuals, very likely both women, who were found associated with the sarcophagus. They not only provide a rare snapshot of the burial practice of the reuse of stone sarcophagi but also provide us with a glimpse into who actually lived in the city in c. 4th century AD.
