In England, remains of Roman production complex was found
In Corby (central England), the remains of a larger Roman manufacturing complex were found, where many specialists worked 1,600 years ago, building villas and houses.
The excavation works lasted almost 6 months and were carried out before the planned construction of the housing estate. Stoves and other objects were discovered on-site, which prove that carpenters and other specialists used to work here. Scientists estimated that the site operated between the late 3rd and mid-4th century CE.
The complex had numerous warehouses for storing equipment and materials. More than 2,000 Roman villas have been discovered throughout Britain, proving the necessity of having a large number of such production centres.
All outdoor facilities will be on display at the Roman heritage centre in Irchester, which opens in 2021.
