British investigators discover bones hidden under the floor of an old army barracks near the Scotland border. Preliminary observations indicate the victim may have been bound and was killed with blunt force trauma to the skull. But, this victim died nearly 1,800 years ago. Solving the mystery of who murdered a 10-year old child in 213 AD, Murder in the Roman Empire delves into the life of an ancient Roman garrison using forensics, archaeology, and criminal investigation. Could an individual soldier have taken advantage of deserted barracks to hide his crime? Or was there collusion among a group of soldiers?
