After the discovery of Roman remains at The Misbourne Schools, we look back at all the times ancient remains were found in Bucks

The remains were found at school as building work begins on their multi-million-pound sports facility.

Fragments of human and animal bone were found at the school as well as pottery.

The archaeologists dug a two-metre deep trench to examine the area and spent time showing the finds to the students and staff.

However, this is not the first time Roman remains have been found in the county.

Take a look back at past times they have been discovered:

HS2 archaeologists find skeleton of possible murder victim

During excavation work at Wellwick Farm near Wendover, a skeleton of an adult male buried face down in a ditch with his hands bound together under his pelvis was discovered.

Experts believe the Iron Age man may have been the victim of a murder or execution.

Archaeologists believe that the buried individual must have been someone of high status as they had the means to pay for such an expensive method of burial.

Bancroft Roman Villa

The Bancroft Roman Villa was discovered during the Milton Keynes development corporation building construction in 1971 and was excavated throughout the next 15 years.

A mosaic floor excavated from the Villa, was mounted on a wall overlooking Queens’ Court in Central Milton Keynes in September 1977.

Bancroft was one of eight large farming estates created 2,000 years ago in the city area, each centred around a Roman Villa – in Milton Keynes Village, Stantonbury, Wymbush, Walton, Dovecote Farm at Shenley Brook End, Bletchley’s Sherwood Drive and Holne Chase.

The Villa at Bancroft is the most extensive excavated of the Roman settlements in Milton Keynes and the archaeological dig revealed an underfloor heating system with a limestone open hearth, a bath suite, colonnaded verandas and porch, an ornamental walled garden with fish pond and a summer house.

Stoke Mandeville's St Mary's Church

Archaeologists on HS2 excavate St Mary’s Church in Stoke Mandeville which was built in 1080AD, shortly after the Norman conquest that transformed Saxon England.

The construction of a new church closer to the centre of the village in the 1880s saw the building abandoned and falling into disrepair.

According to local accounts, a child was killed by falling masonry in the 1930s, and by 1966, the building was considered so dangerous that the Royal Engineers were drafted in to demolish it.

Over the next 50 years, the rubble pile left became overgrown with vegetation, blending into the surrounding greenery, meaning newcomers to the area may have been unaware of the existence of the church building there previously.
