Portrait from a Roman stone tombstone of an unknown wealthy female, thought to be 3rd century AD, but reused in repairs to the 4th century fort wall, in the Vindolanda Museum, Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, England. The Roman stonemason has produced an unflattering image of the deceased. Fragments of other female tombstones have also been found at Vindolanda. Hadrian's Wall was built 73 miles across Britannia, now England, 122-128 AD, under the reign of Emperor Hadrian, ruled 117-138, to mark the Northern extent of the Roman Empire and guard against barbarian attacks from the Picts to the North. The Vindolanda Museum is run by the Vindolanda Charitable Trust and forms part of the Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
