Roman village discovered in Wiltshire

Silbury Hill in Wiltshire, England may contain more than a Neolithic mound. It may also be the site of a first century Roman village. "English Heritage geophysicist Dr Neil Linford said: 'We are really excited by this discovery because we had no idea that a Roman village of such a size lay this close to Silbury Hill.'"

The large Roman settlement was discovered by using caesium magnetometers to detect magnetic changes in the earth caused by human activity. Experts believe that the village may have been a way-stop for Romans traveling to Bath.
