London. Tho extension of the In

covery of tho graveyard used by the
twentieth legion of the Romans during
their occupation of that city.
Tho Chester infirmary occupies a
site which Is" locally referred to aB
tho "plague field." Tho slto seems to
have acquired Its unsavory name from
the fact that casual discoveries of hu
man remains had led to the supposi

tho great plague.

larger numbers on the Bite of tho ex

Four distinct types of graves havo
been uncovered. One Is a tomb formed
of local Biindstono, evidently repre

as the walls of the tomb aro covered
in plaster, and tho dome of tho struc
ture originally stood out In marked
coutrabt to tho surrounding surface of
itho land, forming a dUtinct tumulus.
Some of the graves were formed by
placing Roman roofing tilos bearing
tho stamp of tho twentieth legion upon
tho floor and also at tho aides, th
legionary Btamps always facing in
ward. Anothor typo of burial was formed
by placing rough hown sandstone so
that a V-shapod trough was formed
for the reception of tho body, A
fourth typo of grave consists of a sim
ple trench, dug In tho solid clay at a
depth of not more than two feet from
tho original land surface
Tho Roman origin of tho groves is
borne out by the fact that bronze
coins of the Emperors Antonlus, Pius
and Commodus havo been found In
thom. Such coins were placod usual

are generally referred to as "Charon's
