Researchers found a remains of a Roman villa in Cambridge. The new Eddington district had already revealed to the researchers two prehistoric funerary monuments, a Roman center, cemeteries, roads. Nobody, however, expected further discoveries.

In addition to the remains of the building, there were found fragments of decorated glass jars, tiles and about 500 pieces of glass in various colors (yellow, white), used to arrange the mosaic.
