Roman Road Used Throughout Medieval Period

Archaeologists working on a section of Roman road in Wiltshire, England have found horseshoes and conclude that the road was in use in the medieval period.

The conclusion was reached since horseshoes were not used by the Romans. "Roy Canham, an archaeologist for Wiltshire County Council, said: 'We can now prove that the route of the current A419 has been important for the last 2000 years.'"
