New finds at Caerleon "totally unexpected"

Students learning to use geophysical equipment have discovered several large buildings at the Roman fortress of Caerleon in south Wales. Cardiff University's Peter Guest said the find was "totally unexpected."

New buildings which may be discovered include markets, administrative buildings like town halls, bath houses, store buildings, or even possibly temples. Caerleon is one of three permanent Roman legionary fortresses in the UK. The buildings date to the first century C.E.
