Home wasn’t built in a day


ARCHAEOLOG­ISTS excavating the site of a former Debenhams store have unearthed the remains of a Roman townhouse.

The well-preserved walls date back almost 2,000 years to the late AD40s, when Roman activity first began in the UK.

Cobbleston­es thought to be part of a Roman road, were also found at the site in Gloucester, along with pottery and roof tiles.

Andrew Armstrong, an archaeolog­ist from the city council, said that finding the remains was “really exciting”.
