Archaeologists have found ancient artifacts in the construction of the metro in Rome
During the extension works of the Rome underground, the archaeologists found items from the Roman times. They are now on display on one of metro stations, reports The Washington Post.
According to representatives of the authorities on the spot were found amphorae, crockery, marble panels and bronze, silver and gold coins. According to archaeologists, earlier this place was a big farm. During construction works, archaeologists reached a depth of 20 meters.
Next year, the artifacts will be moved to one of the stations, the construction of which is now underway. “For those who will use metro, this station in particular, it will be a full immersion in the history of Rome and this place,” said archaeologist Rossella Rea, who participated in the excavations.
