Walbrook Skulls: A Storied Find for the Pages of London’s History

Deep within the heart of London, archaeologists have been unraveling an eerie mystery that dates back to Roman times. Since the late 1980s, they’ve uncovered 39 skulls, all of which were male, aged between 18 and 35. The mystery? No other body parts were found in the vicinity.

Broken jawbones, fractured skulls, and evidence of severe blunt force trauma paint a picture of violent lives these men lead or were subjected to. What’s even more chilling is that most of the skulls bore indicators of decapitation – a grim detail that lends itself to several theories about the men’s demise.

Initially, many believed these skulls to belong to victims of the Celtic Iceni queen’s rebellion, led by Boudicca. But carbon dating paints a different story. They were deposited well after Boudicca’s uprising, during a time of relative peace in the city. This observation turned the wheels of other theories, including a flooded Roman cemetery, an undocumented insurrection, or the remnants of gladiators and criminals left in open burial pits.

What lends further intrigue to the tale is their storied resting place. Found in an area of active excavation known for its centuries-long connection with burial practices and rituals, the site closed in December 2022 for refurbishing until 2026.
