Pupils from Weaver’s Close Primary School in Earl Shilton visited the stone coffin at David Wilson East Midlands’ The Lanterns development last week for a chance to see this much talked about artefact for themselves. Archeologists from the Battle of Bosworth Heritage Centre joined in to give the children an overview of the tomb’s possible historial importance whilst they went about sketching it. Coverage of the visit appeared in the Leicester Mercury on Saturday. We now think the coffin could be in fact Roman, making it around 2000 years old!
