Archeologists Unearth Ancient Roman Mosaic Under a Vineyard via My Modern Met

Thanks to Italy’s rich history, if you dig a little bit you’re sure to find something special—even in unexpected places. This was made clear in Verona, where the city has been excavating a privately owned vineyard since the fall. And now, their hard work has paid off as archaeologists have uncovered a pristine mosaic floor dating back to the 1st century CE.

It’s an incredible find in an area that’s long been recognized to house treasures from ancient Rome. In fact, according to local sources, the land was known to sit on top of Roman artifacts since at 19th century. Some mosaics, which are on display in a city museum, were already excavated from the site in the 1960s.
