Summary : Part of a Roman Milestone inscribed to Constantine the Great (AD 307-337) found before 1818. It is now in the Victoria Institute, Worcester.
More information : Part of a Roman milestone inscribed to Constantine the Great
broken in two pieces was found a few years before 1818 in the
kitchen garden of the Parsonage Farm, now Court House, Kempsey
at a depth of 4ft (SO 84774914). It appeared to have formed the
foundations of a building as it was associated with several other
stones cemented together and presumably came from the line of the
Roman road (RR 180) which runs north to south about a mile east
of Kempsey village. Now in the Victoria Institute, Worcester. (1-2)
