Remains of Roman object near Cambridge have been discovered
Remains of Roman object near Cambridge have been discovered

During the excavations preceding the construction works for the new housing estate in Bottisham (near Cambridge), the remains of a Roman camp were found.

The excavations lasted three months and were commissioned by the developer, due to the construction site – an area rich in historical finds. To the joy of scientists, the remains of Roman buildings were excavated from the ground, which was part of a rural villa complex dating back to the 2nd-4th century CE. In the opinion of researchers, the structures were former termes.

In addition, at the site of discovery, various types of artefacts were found, including the 4th-century coin of Constantine II, ceramic tiles, stone objects or a ceramic vessel imported from the continent.
