Fragments of Roman glass vessel found in Wales

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

In the city of Abermagwr (western Wales), were found fragments of a Roman glass vessel, dating back to the 4th century CE. Extracted decorated glass fragments prove the status of villa owners.

The discovery took place in a Roman villa whose remains were spotted in 2006, thanks to photos taken from the plane. The villa is dated to the beginning of the 3rd century CE. The building was abandoned at the beginning of the 4th century CE, when the building was destroyed as a result of a fire. Researchers found on the kitchen floor an upturned pot, which proves that there was a sudden evacuation.
