Roman highway unearthed in Britain
Published on February 7th, 2011 | by Admin2
Constructed by Roman invaders, the 85 ft wide earthwork stands more than 15 ft high and consists of a sweeping road with deep ditches at the side.
It was so densely covered by trees that although its existence was known about, it could not be found until now.
One of the country’s first roads, it was uncovered when the Forestry Commission, acting at the behest of English Heritage expert Peter Addison, cleared the Norway spruce fir trees in Puddletown Forest.
