Fulwell, inhumations at Carley Hill
Religious Ritual and Funerary
It is worthy of remark that several excavations have been discovered in the solid limestone rock, at Carley Hill, (similar to stone coffins) containing human Bodies. Thus said Dr. Clanney when he reported the discovery in November 1820 of a Roman figure and human bones at Carley Hill.
