Wednesday, December 12, 2012
YORK, ENGLAND—A section of Roman road has been uncovered in the medieval undercroft at England’s York Minster by a team from the York Archaeological Trust. The road, thought to be part of the Via Quintana, probably ran behind the original Roman basilica. York was a major Roman military and economic hub from the first through fifth centuries.
