Kent Archaeological Review extract

Letters to the editor --
Lullingstone Roman Villa, Wall-Plaster.
by Tony Rook.

Dear Sir,

I have recently taken to Miss Liversidge at Cambridge some drawings which my father, R J Rook, did of the in-situ wall-plaster found at Lullingstone about twenty or so years ago. They are with Miss Liversidge, at the Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, should any student wish to refer to them.

Whilst discussing the matter with Miss Liversidge a point was raised which may usefully be aired through the Review. This is that the face of one of the figures in the Christian mural was stolen from the excavation. There is a chance that the fragment still survives somewhere and it is just possible that one of your readers may know its whereabouts. Its value in the context of reconstruction will be obvious and its return, anonymously or otherwise, would be much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,
