Rare artefact found at Roman site





Archaeologists excavating one of the most important Roman sites in Britain have made an"extremely rare" find.

The team digging at part of the Roman fortress in Caerleon near Newport found what they believe is a legionary's ceremonial lance.

Dr Peter Guest said he thought the iron staff, broken into three pieces, was the first of its type found in the UK.
