Major Roman road found in south-eastern Serbia

An eight meter wide, stone block road, dating to the first century, has been discovered near the town of Dimitrovgrad, Serbia. Archaeologists believe the road was part of the Via Militaris, a major Roman military road.

The excavation of the site, which was found during construction of a modern road, also revealed a number of artifacts including horseshoes and metal cart parts. The road is believed to have been in use until the 7th century.
