Roman temple discovered in Italy using radar

In 2017, scientists using radar found the remains of a Roman temple in central Italy. The discovery took place in Falerii Novi, an abandoned town about 50 km from Rome.

The temple had rows of columns and covered an area of ​​120 meters long and 60 meters wide. The object was located in southern Etruria.

Falerii Novi was established after suppressing the rebellion of the Falisci tribe in 241 BCE as a Roman colony. Excavations in the city began in the 1990s. Specialized research proved that there were shops, warehouses, a market, temples, a theater and a forum in the colony.

Scientists examined the excavation area with a radar attached to an ATV.
