Buildings find at Roman fortress

Help

Archaeologists have discovered several large buildings at the fortress of Caerleon in south Wales, one of Britain's best known Roman sites.

The major discovery was made by chance by students learning to use geophysical equipment.

It suggests the Roman town of Isca was much larger than previously thought, with buildings including a town hall and temples.
