I watched a BBC television last night on that subject. The British Cold Case team arrived at a site which had been occupied from the earliest times in Baldock, Hertfordshire, which is north of London and close to where I live. They'd been called to investigate the former life of a woman lying on her side, who had been buried two thousand years ago with the skeletons of three babies around her. Tests put together an interesting picture of her past life.
However, the woman wasn't Roman, but Celtic, so she wouldn't have had any assistance from their doctors. By linking DNA to two of the three babies to the thirty-five-year-old mother, they ascertained that she was the earliest recorded mother of triplets in Britain. She must have died in childbirth. The second child couldn't get through the birthing canal without aid, and the third remained inside her. The man buried above her could have been her husband. In those days, a couple married for life and supported each other into their dotage. He could have asked to be buried close to her.
