Olympic-sized Roman villa discovered in Britain





The discovery is one of the largest and best-preserved Roman villas yet discovered in the country.

Shaped like a church, the building was discovered on the Isle of Wight, and has been likened to a medieval hall.
Its remains were discovered at the site of another Roman villa in Brading, and are believed to have been constructed 150 years before the other building.

The later Brading villa's remains had disappeared from sight until 1879 when a couple of local men stumbled across them by chance.
