The Ivory Bangle Lady The skeletal remains of a Roman woman known as the Ivory Bangle Lady have helped archaeologists discover that wealthy people from across the Empire were living in fourth century York.
Their research on one of the Yorkshire Museum's best-preserved burial finds paints a picture of a cosmopolitan city, a theme explored in our Roman York gallery.
The high-status, african woman will be one of six characters from Roman York whose stories will be told in the exhibition, using real evidence found by archaeologists.

She was found buried in 1901 near to Sycamore Terrace, a street lying mid-way between Bootham, the main road going north out of York, and the River Ouse.

Her remains, dated to the second half of the fourth century, were found with jet and elephant ivory bracelets, earrings, pendants, beads, a blue glass jug and a glass mirror.

The most famous object from the burial is a rectangular openwork mount of bone, possibly from an unrecorded wooden casket, which reads "Hail, sister, may you live in God" indicating she may have had Christian beliefs.
The research by the University of Reading's Department of Archaeology analysed her facial features, the chemical signature of the food and drink she consumed and the evidence from the burial site. It all pointed to a high status incomer to Roman York, likely to have been of North African descent. #theivorybanglelady #ivorybanglelady #britian #york #moorsineurope #blackeuropeans

Did you know when you see a church with red doors it represents the blood that mother produces every 28 days with the cycle of the moon, and that the two pillars on the outside represents her legs, also the pews to the left and right represents her ovaries.

Black woman found burried with her chariot, jewels, bangles, and amulets. She was obviously of high status from the appearance of her burial and the way she died.

The Ivory Bangle Lady is the name given to an elite Roman burial in the town of York, north of the River Ouse and southwest of the legionary fortress. York, called Eboracum in Roman times, was founded in AD 71, as a fortress and civilian settlement and it was a provincial capital for the Romans in northeast England during their occupation.The lady was discovered in 1901, buried in a stone coffin, aligned north/south, with the head facing north. In addition to the jet and ivory bangles for which the lady is named, artifacts include beads, earrings and pendants of blue glass, jet and ivory, a glass mirror, and a blue glass jug. A rectangular fragmentary mount of bone, which may have been attached to a wooden casket, read in Latin "Hail sister, may you live in God". All of these artifacts date to the second half of the 4th century AD.
Ivory Bangles and North Africa

The Ivory Bangle Lady was between 18 and 23 years old when she died, and stood approximately five feet tall. There is no evidence of a cause of death; but she is believed on the basis of skeletal comparisons to have been from North Africa. Isotopic analysis suggests that she spent her childhood in the west of Britain, or perhaps the coastal areas of Western Europe and the Mediterranean Sea.Although the provenience of the ivory hasn't yet been established, it is intriguing to think that she may have brought or been sent the ivory from her homeland.

"The Ivory Bangle Woman" – as she has been nicknamed – because of the well preserved valuable imports, and jewelry, including bangles made from valuable ivory and jet, a mirror, and a blue glass perfume jar she was buried with; was seemingly one of the wealthiest women in Eboracum, or Roman York (UK). Archaeologists have recently proved that she was of African decent. (surprise surprise)

Discovered in 1901, now, well over sixteen centuries after her death, the "Ivory Bangle Lady" is CHALLENGING the common popular ASSUMPTION that African immigrants in Roman Britain were of low-status, male, and likely to have been slaves. Archaeologists suspect that the ivory bangle lady, with all of her finery, was likely to have been an elite member of a diverse society.

Startling new forensic research has revealed that multicultural Britain is nothing new after discovering black Africans were living in high society in Roman York. A study of various remains and artefacts from the 4th century at the Yorkshire Museum shows North Africans were living there thousands of years ago. The most exciting results came from analysis of the so-called 'Ivory Bangle Lady' whose remains were found in 1901 on the city's Sycamore Terrace. Her skull was found buried with a range of jewellery including jet and elephant ivory bracelets, earrings, pendants and a glass mirror indicating she was wealthy and was of high social status. The research used modern forensic ancestry assessment to show it was likely she was of North African descent and may have migrated to York from somewhere warmer. The fascinating study was carried out by the University of Reading's Department of Archaeology, and senior lecturer Dr Hella Eckhardt said: 'Up until now we  have had to rely on evidence of such foreigners in Roman Britain from  inscriptions.
