Well Preserved Roman Mosaic Floor Discovered Unearthed In An Italian Vineyard

Historians described it as the discovery of the year.

A Gorgeous and remarkably well-conserved mosaic floor has been unearthed by archeologists in the hilly area of Negar di Valpolicella, near Verona, Italy.

Following weeks of activities on a site, a team from Superintendent of Archaeology, Fine Arts, and Landscape of Veronica had done more digs in October and February before work got suspended due to the pandemic outbreak.

The reported post on the town’s page, however, gave the announcement that after years of failed attempts, they’ve officially brought both the foundations and floor to light.

The viral post, which of course has made top new headlines also added that authorities will now dialogue with the real owners of the area as well as the municipality in order to identify the most effective way of making the found archeological treasure more available and accessible.

Specifically, Myko Clelland, a Historian, and a Twitter User shared the discovery and shortly after, it garnered over 78,900 retweets and over 400,000 likes. ‘Newly found just outside Veronica. What could be this year’s biggest found – an entirely intact Roman Mosaic Villa Floor. Clelland had written.

Some limitations have, however, been lifted in Italy as cases continue to decline and just a week into working again at the hilly site, the floor beneath the Italy vineyard was found. Currently, they’re still calmly excavating the area but photos shared online displayed an incredible pristine floor and the foundation of the villa.
