Horseshoes found on Roman road in Britain





Archaeologists have unearthed a Roman road, a Bronze Age ditch and some medieval artefacts during major road improvement works in Wiltshire.
The historical remains - including three iron horseshoes - were found in the upper layers of the Roman road.

Archaeologist Neil Holbrook said the findings had been recorded and added: "The Romans didn't have horseshoes.

"We seem to have proved by the discovery that the road continued in use into the medieval period."
