New discoveries at Roman Maryport

Experts and volunteers from Oxford Archaeology have discovered what they believe is a "lost" Roman harbor along with a Roman fort at Maryport, on the west coast of Cumbria in England. The archaeological project hopes to "build up a picture of what ordinary life was like" in this part of Roman Britain.

Artifacts found during the dig include fragments of French and German tableware, vessels for wine and olive oil, and several pieces of jewelry.

The team later backed off on their theory of the fort including a port.
