January 1997: HER findspot and mapped location changed from (see 'Not to be published on web' tab for finder/s and/or findspot/s) to agree with spot marked on Ipswich Museum 6" map by Elizabeth Owles as findspot of "skeleton (19)72", (S4) which probably refers to this find.
Note: A Rom cemetery was, coincidentally, found during an excavation at the Ex-Gardners garage site, Little St Marys (LMD 115) at (see 'Not to be published on web' tab for finder/s and/or findspot/s) in January 1997.
