Thieves damage Roman villa site





Archaeologists excavating the site of a Roman villa say artefacts have been stolen and damage caused by thieves using metal detectors.
The team arrived at the site just north of Lincoln on Thursday morning to find 31 holes had been dug there overnight.

The four-week dig is a joint venture between Lindum Heritage and Bishop Grosseteste University College Lincoln.

Zoe Tomlinson, from Lindum Heritage, said the damage caused would have a lasting impact.
