Dry weather reveals Roman history in Great Britain

The dry summer of 2010 in Great Britain has been a help to archaeologists as it revealed hundreds of archaeological sites through "cropmarks," the landscape markings prodcued by crops growing over buried buildings.

Among sites revealed this summer were a Roman camp near Bradford Abbas, Dorset, a Roman fort in North Yorkshire, and a "lost" beach where the Romans landed 2,000 years ago to begin their invasion of Britain. Many of the sites were discovered by studying aerial photosgraphs, and experts at English Heritage plan to continue their research with hopes of finding additional sites.
