Construction work often unearths some amazing things but this ancient Roman town discovered by construction workers in the south of France must be one of the greatest.
While digging for the construction of a boarding school, set to open in 2019, a Roman town dating back thousands of years has been discovered.
The 2000 year old civilisation is thought to be that of Ucetia at Uzes, a French outpost of the Roman empire.
Historians believe the site could date back to between the 1st century BC to the 7th century AD with some features from the Middle Ages.
Among the ruins are huge mosaics and public buildings, which give us incredible insight into the life of the time.
