Roman Calçada Road Found in Portugal

A small stretch of Roman road has been discovered near Tavira, Portugal by historian Luís Fraga da Silva. The road originally connected the cities of Ossónoba and Balsa to Pax Júlia and dates to the 2nd century C.E.

Historians speculated about the existance of the road but had previously not found evidence. The discovery of 75 meters of stone gives rise to hopes that more Roman sites will be found.
