FIRST SIGHT This gravestone was excavated at the Bridges Garage site, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, where many Roman burials have been found. The apparently incomplete inscription reads, “In memory of Bodicacia wife lived 27 years”; archaeologists thought remains buried nearby could be the named woman’s. The pediment featured an Oceanus mask, mostly chiselled out in Roman times. Length 143cm. Photography Cotswold Archaeology

Sir Terry Pratchett (1948–2015), in The Folklore of Discworld (Transworld 2008), by Terry Pratchett & Jacqueline Simpson
