Man accidentally finds a 'perfectly preserved' Roman villa in his backyard

Recommended Posts

A man stumbled across a Roman villa in his back garden which is being hailed as the most significant discovery of its kind for a decade.  Luke Irwin, from Wiltshire, was laying an electricity cable in his barn when he uncovered a mosaic underground...

The find has been proclaimed by Historic England as “unparalleled in recent years”. After an eight-day dig, archaeologists uncovered more of the ‘elaborate’ and ‘extraordinarily well-preserved’ villa, thought to be one of the largest ever found in the country.
