Poundbury, Pummery Square, Brownsword Hall



Vandalism or a natural breakage? A stone sarcophagus in pieces.




"A 1,600-year-old Roman sarcophagus has been vandalised in Dorchester. Officers are appealing for information after the ancient artefact was damaged beyond repair in Poundbury sometime between 11pm on Saturday, April 15 and 6am on Sunday, April 16. The empty sarcophagus was being kept in Brownsword Hall in Pummery Square. The stone coffin was discovered with the lid removed and broken into pieces".
