A Roman mosaic unique in Britain depicting one of the most famous battles of the Trojan War has been uncovered in a farmer’s field.

The artwork was discovered during excavations of an elaborate villa complex made up of a host of structures and other buildings, dating to the third or fourth century AD, Historic England said.

Such is its rarity and importance, the site has been officially protected as a scheduled monument by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), it was announced on Thursday.

I'd guess the two facing chariots are piloted by Hector and Achilles.

That  confusing because they were listed in and open section on Google and there was no mention of copy right. 

Here is a link to the photos and there are a lot of them: Roman villa mosaic uncovered in farmer’s field given protected status - Bing images

Here is link to the OP of the thread: Roman villa mosaic uncovered in farmer’s field given protected status (msn.com)

 Hope this helps
