Roman pub found in Scotland

Archaeologists working in Scotland have found what they believe are the remains of a Roman pub.

The forts are thought to date from around 70 AD, about 50 years before Hadrian’s Wall was built.

The University of Liverpool team found the wine bar in a “vicus”, or small civilian settlement, using a variety of techniques, including metal detecting.

They say the Roman watering hole had a large square room, the equivalent of a public bar, and fronted on to a paved area, not unlike a modern beer garden. The team also found the spout of a wine jug.
