Beautiful floor discovered in Italy

A Roman mosaic was discovered beneath an Italian property near Verona. Architects discovered the treasure in the hills above the village of Negrar di Valpolicella in northeastern Italy. The finding came nearly a century after discovering the ruins of an old villa.

Archaeologists believe the elaborate flooring was part of the previously discovered construction. It was discovered “after endless decades of futile attempts.”

Technicians are currently determining the most secure means of excavating the exquisite mosaic floor, which is thought to date back to the third century AD.

A Roman mosaic was uncovered beneath a farm in Verona, Italy. “Researchers discovered part of the Roman Villa’s flooring and foundations over a century ago,” it says.

“Following that, the Superintendence will work with the landowners and the town to determine the best way to make this archaeological treasure available, open, and visible beneath our feet.”

“The process will take time, and substantial resources will be necessary. Finally, it is vital to take care of the path.”

Excavation on the site ended in 1922, but was resumed last summer by a team from Verona’s Superintendent of Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Landscape.

Soon after, the unexpected discovery was made public. A tweet from archaeologist Myko Clelland, who spotted the find online, quickly went viral.
