Roman artefacts found at housing development

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A team of archaeologists have found Roman artefacts at the site of a housing development.

Cotswold Archaeology discovered a Roman settlement of three stone buildings which are thought to date back to between the second and fourth centuries AD.

The find was discovered at a Redrow development in Llanwern, south Wales.

The items from the excavation and archive will be given to a local museum, Redrow said.

The stone buildings also had a "well-made road and complex water system".

Romano-British. Notice the mosaic is a Celtic Knot.

Woven border. Seems to've been a ubiquitously popular Roman design motif.

Must have been one hell of a “Storm”.  Seems “IT” was a behemoth.
