Monument Number 316634

Hob Uid: 316634
Location :
Rotherham

Grid Ref : SK4100091000
Summary : A Roman cremation cemetery of probable 1st to 3rd century date was found at Templeborough with urns which were found in 1834, 1927 and 1955.
More information : [SK 4111 9124 & 4134 9122]. Two Roman burial urns containing
cremations were found in 1955 during extensions to the Templeborough
Works. These, together with a similar urn found in 1927 east of
the Fort, are in Rotherham Museum and one probably of 1st Century
date. Two other cinerary urns, from Brinsworth farm, found about
1834, were considered to be from a cemetery attached to Templeborough
Fort. (1-3)

The urns uncovered in 1955 were found in September and December at
approximately SK 4133 9120 and SK 4114 9124 respectively. Rotherham
Museum has no better siting for the one recovered from the industrial
annexe east of the fort, and no additional details of the 19th c.
finds. One of the latter, however, is held by the Museum, and is
classed as 3rd c.
The whole area, from which these urns originate, is now covered
by industrial development. (4)
