Roman dog skeleton is 'donated'





A Lincolnshire charity has had what could be a 2,000-year-old dog skeleton donated to one of its stores.

A note with the bones said they were Roman, excavated from a 1st Century AD pit at the Lawn in Lincoln in 1986.

Caroline Grosse, from St Barnabas Hospice in Lincoln, said:"I was a bit shocked as bones are not something you expect to find (donated in a box)."

Nicknamed Caesar, the dog bones will be handed over to The Collection museum in Lincoln, she said.
