In 2016, construction works carried out in the very centre of Rochester in England brought to light a fragment of a 2000-year-old Roman road.
Work continued on the building, which was bought by restorer Mark Lucas and his son, in order to convert the site into a shop. While removing debris, dirt, dust and grease in the basement, they noticed a stone in the corner of the room, which, to their surprise, extended to the other end of the room. In total, the road section is four meters long. To secure the discovery, the road was covered with a glass cover from above, so that visitors could admire the monument.
The discovered road in Rochester was established in 43 CE and was used in Roman times for the march of troops from the coast to London.
