Roman irrigation system found in England

“Our findings have unearthed zebra-like stripes of Roman planting beds that are encircled on their higher northern side by more deep pit wells,” Mr Evans said.
“The gully-defined planting beds were closely set and were probably grapevines or possibly asparagus.”
During dry spells water would have been poured from the wells into the ditches to irrigate crops, he added.
