In 1995 prior to the building of the Gherkin in London, a body of a young Roman girl was discovered by archaeologists and taken to the Museum of London. The skeleton was of a young girl between the ages of 13-17 and was buried in an isolated grave outside the Roman walls of Roman London and she was not buried in any of the known Roman cemeteries in London. She was buried with pottery that could be dated back to 350-400 AD.
She was re-buried in her original resting place in 2007 under the pavement next to the Gherkin. A plaque with a laurel wreath on it marks the site of the body and next to it is an inscription that is written in both English and Latin.
