Richard III archaeologists strike again with Roman mosaic



A Roman mosaic depicting one of the most famous battles of the Trojan War is located in Britain. The university's archaeological team have found a Roman mosaic featuring the great Greek hero of Achilles in battle with his brother, the great avenger, in a farmer's field in England, nearly a decade after they found the remains of King Richard III under a car park near the cathedral.

A team of archaeologists from the University ofLeicester in central England seem to have the golden touch.

The university's archaeological team have found a Roman mosaic depicting the great Greek hero of Achilles in battle with brave Hector during the Trojan War in a farmer's field about 160 kilometers away from where King Richard III's remains were found.

The first depiction of events from Homer's classic 'The Iliad' has been found in the U.K.

John Thomas said the mosaic says a lot about the person who commissioned it in the late Roman period.

The first depiction of these stories that we have ever found in Britain is by someone with a knowledge of the classics, who had the money to commission a piece of such detail. This is the most exciting Roman mosaic discovery in the last century.

The mosaic, the oldest form of heritage protection in Britain, was granted on Thursday by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport. It is now a criminal offense for anyone to dig around the site or even look for metal.

Duncan Wilson, chief executive of Historic England, said that by protecting the site they are able to continue learning from it and look forward to what future excavations may teach them.

Jim Irvine, the son of Brian Naylor, found the mosaic in the county of Rutland during the last year of the lockdown. The university's archaeological team excavated after Irvine notified the authorities.

He said that the discovery was made after a ramble through the fields with the family.

He said the last year has been a great experience.

The remains of the mosaic were found by archaeologists, measuring almost 27 feet by 11 feet. Human remains were found in the rubble and are thought to have been buried after the building was no longer occupied.

The site has been filled with sand to protect it from future damage and work will continue to turn over the field to grassland to lower the risk of future damage.

The team at the university have little time to rest after their latest success. They are going to start digging near the Cathedral in January in the hope of finding long- lost treasures from the medieval and ancient times.

The search for the lost grave of Richard III began in August of 2012 and is best known by the team. In February of the following year, the university announced that they had found the remains of England's last Plantagenet king and the last English monarch to have died on the battlefield. He passed away in 1495.

The son of a farmer discovered a large Roman mosaic and villa in a field at his farm. He contacted a local museum after observing a crop mark on satellite imagery, and the mosaic is unique to Britain. He said the villa complex is almost in comic book style, and has been protected by the Department for Digital, Culture. Storyful uses the University of Leicester as a reference.

A second look at the upcoming disaster movie Moonfall was given to us less than a month ago, and it seems to ask the age-old question, "What would happen if the moon fell?" It is the latest in a long tradition of films centered on apocalyptic scenarios brought on by humanity's arrogance and/or aliens being jerks. The disaster genre is very popular due to the fact that audiences, like the planet they are living on, do not wish to see disasters.

Engineers and scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California are working on a project that will send a spaceship to another world next year. The other world is made of metal and may give a glimpse of how a planet with a metal core was formed. The first space exploration to explore an object in space that is not made of rock or ice will be done by a small, dark-colored, spaceship.
