Video: Ancient Roman sarcophagus found next to baby's bones near Borough Market

An ancient Roman sarcophagus has been excavated from a building site in London.

The 1,600-year-old coffin, which was discovered near Borough Market in central London, is thought to contain the remains of a mother after the bones of a baby were found nearby, experts said.

Archaeologists lifted the lid of the stone coffin on Tuesday and found small bones and a broken Roman bracelet in the surrounding soil.
