As the archeological team from Suffolk County Council was in the middle of a routine dig in the RAF Mildenhall officers' housing area in Beck Row March 12, they knew they'd stumbled across an interesting find when a shovel hit something solid.
That "something solid" turned out to be the skull of a human skeleton -- thought to be almost 2,000 years old.
After just more than a day spent carefully digging out the area using nothing but small trowels and brushes, a complete skeleton was revealed.
