VISITORS will have a rate opportunity to view ancient Roman tombs next weekend.

Brambletye, in Westerham Road, Keston, is to open to the public on Sunday, September 21.

The monumental circular Roman tomb, with radiating buttress, built of flint and tile in AD200, can be viewed along with a smaller rectangular tomb in which was found a small coffin. Free guided talks will be given by volunteer archaeologists from Kent Archaeological Unit and Bromley and West Kent Archaeological Group. Archaeologist Brian Philip said: "We are looking forward to showing these two fine Roman tombs, the only such tombs available to show to visitors in Britain."

The tombs will be open from 11am to 4pm and entry is free. There is pedestrian access only, but parking at Keston Ponds or Heathfield Road.
