Roman villa discovered in Peterborough, England

A 2,000-year-old Roman villa built around a cobbled courtyard has been unearthed in Peterborough, England.

The palace dates from about 250AD and is thought to be one of the largest excavated Roman complexes in the country.

“All in all this new site is quite an amazing one for Peterborough because of its importance and rarity,” Mrs Casa Hatton said.

“It’s important not only at a local level, but regionally and possibly even nationally.”
