Roman pond with Roman remains

In Barnham, a village in the south of England, a Roman pond was discovered in 2015, surrounded by pottery remains and mud pits. Even a bronze Roman nail cleaner was discovered in one of the ditches. The finds confirm the presence of the Romans in this region.

Finds unearthed a few weeks ago dating back to around 100 CE. The discovery was made thanks to the construction work that was taking place on this site.

Probably the inhabitants of the village used the pond to water livestock (cattle, sheep). Archaeologists conduct soil research to help them learn about the living conditions of the inhabitants of that time.
