Altar dedicated to Jupiter found in England

Archaeologists working in Maryport, England, have uncovered a Roman altar that dates back 1,600 years.

The excitement started soon after 9am on Wednesday when Mr Murray, 68, who was also responsible for finding a hoard of Roman coins a couple of years ago, was working in a pit previously excavated in Victorian times.

He said: “There was a lot of rock around and I noticed a piece with a line on it. I thought it might be a piece of something.”

He called Mr Wilmott and the two men carefully uncovered it.
