1 The Most Amazing Discovery in Lancaster
Archaeologists in Britain are ecstatic over the latest discovery in Lancaster. The ruins unearthed just near Lancaster Castle, off the sea shore, has turned out to be a 4th century roman fort built near the shore to ward off invasions and attacks from the sea. The lead scientist in charge of the excavation, Jason Wood, a specialist in Roman fortification said it was a significant and amazing discovery.
Archaeologists had suspected earlier that something of significant value lay buried beneath the field; a geographical survey had been carried out to that effect a few years ago. The assumption turned out correct when a junction built at the edge of the wall and a road appeared after preliminary excavations.
