In 2018, archaeologists discovered the remains of a Roman wall in Sandy, a small town in Bedfordshire, England. It has been known since the 18th century that Sandy was once a Roman city.

The discovery took place in the cemetery. It is worth noting that the excavations in Sandy have been going on for two months and so far have allowed to bring to light artifacts from the 4th century CE. The newly discovered ruins of the Roman wall are the first evidence of the existence of a defensive Roman center. The wall is made of a local iron mastic bound with cement. Certainly, the wall has been preserved in such a small degree, probably because after the Romans left the region, the materials were used by the local population.

Interestingly, scientists also found a skeleton and about 20 small holes outside the wall, which were probably supposed to be burial sites for cremated bodies.

Archaeologists will continue to excavate and their work will be available to the community.
