A team from Cardiff University made the find during excavations of the ‘Lost City of the Legion’, a suburb of public-style buildings discovered in August last year.

The trenches have also revealed remains from buildings that could include marketplaces, administrative buildings, bath-houses and temples, hidden under the soil for two millennia.

The Romans ruled Britain for 367 years, leaving in the year 410. Not long after, the Anglo-Saxons (the English) arrived in Britain from what is now the borderland between Germany and Denmark after the Celts who lived in what is now England invited them over to help them fight the Picts (the Scots). Unlike the Celts, the Anglo-Saxons were never under Roman rule.

More Roman soldiers were based in Britannia than any other Roman province, because the Ancient Britons put up more of a fight against the invaders than the Continental Europeans did (and, of course, it wouldn't be the last time that such a thing would happen).
