The ‘stunning’ bronze cockerel parents placed in the grave of a two-year old Roman girl as a message to the Gods

A bronze and enamel cockerel placed in the grave of a two year old Roman girl as a message to the Gods has gone on display after a ‘stunning’ restoration.

The magnificent cockerel was found in child’s grave in Roman Cirencester – and has been painstakingly restored. It goes on show in the historic town today

Archaeologists made the discovery in Cirencester two years ago, and say it is only of only eight known in the Roman Empire.

They believe the expensive gift was placed in the grave by loving parents hoping it would ease their daughter’s transition into the ‘next world’.
