1,800-year-old ‘Beachy Head Lady’

Experts are not entirely sure how she ended up in Britain, but researchers believe Beachy Head Lady probably grew up in the area and was possibly the wife or mistress of a local official at a nearby Roman villa.

Another theory is that she was a merchant trading wares in Europe and chose to settle in the country.
