The urn and bones from the Roman burial barrow on East Mersea Road, soon after their return to Mersea in August 2014. They are on loan from Colchester and Ipswich Museums. When the bones were analysed, they were sorted and some of these are now on the shelf outside the urn. The bones on the left of the shelf are leg bones, in the centre are floating bits that contained the interesting new find - frankincense, and on the right are vertebrae.
The barrow is thought to date from 100 - 120 AD. 10 August 2014.

Mersea Museum has a large collection of images, mainly of Mersea Island and the surrounding area. Those shown here are a small sample.
The images are divided into categories - click on a Category to view a selection.
Each year, a selection of the images with an accompanying audiocommentary form an audio-visual display that is run when the Museum is open.
If you can add to the information we have about an image, such as the names of the people, the place or the date, please Email us.
The collection is always increasing thanks to the kindness of may individuals. If you have photographs that are suitable for our collection, we would be pleased to hear from you. We can just take a digital copy of a photograph and return the original to you.
