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”.
