Tomb of Roman soldier in Colchester

Roman soldier's tomb

An iron age coin, an electric hairbrush and a fragment of a Zeppelin airship are just some of the objects brought to the BBC Bus in Colchester.

All the items have been added to the 'A History of the World' website, an online archive, put together with museums around the country.

Colchester Castle Museum houses one of the biggest objects, the tombstone of Longinus Sdapeze.

The tomb of the Roman soldier was discovered off Lexden Road in the town.
