Sewer work in England reveals Roman mosaic floor

Sewer engineers repairing a Victorian sewer in York, England, have uncovered a Roman mosaic.

“It’s a very interesting site, helping us to understand the extent of Roman activity in the area. Part of a mosaic showing a bull with a fish tail was discovered in this area of Toft Green during construction work in the 19th century.

“This newly discovered section may be part of the same mosaic and the excavation will provide important new information about the earlier find, which is now in the Yorkshire Museum.
