"Sophisticated" Roman village found at Northamptonshire construction site

Excavations of a construction site in Burton Latimer, in Northamptonshire, England, have unearthed nearly 40kg of Roman pottery, ironwork, and the remains of 30 Romans, leading experts to believe that the site was once a wealthy Roman village.

“This would have been a sophisticated society and that shows because we’ve found some pottery imported from France," said Simon Mortimer, director of CGMS Consulting, the company in charge of the dig.
