Devon discovery could "rewrite the history of the Romans in Britain"

The discovery of the largest Roman settlement ever found in Devon, England began when two metal detectorists found nearly a hundred Roman coins near Exeter. The find resulted in a geophysical survey which uncovered the large settlement.

According to archaeologist Danielle Wootton of the University of Exeter, the "discovery could force [experts] to rewrite the history of the Romans in Britain." So far, the survey has found evidence of a huge settlement including roundhouses, quarry pits and track ways, as well as a road.
