New excavation at Caerleon 'could change understanding of Roman history in Wales'

AN EXCAVATION of a newly-discovered network of ancient buildings could potentially change our understanding of Roman history in Wales, archaeologists believe.
Staff, students and volunteers from Cardiff University have begun a month-long project to excavate the “Lost City of the Legion” at Caerleon, near Newport.
Archaeologists from Cardiff University have started a dig which will last until September 1 – which they hope will unravel the biggest secrets yet to come out of the historic village, and said it may confirm that it was intended as a major seat of power.
A group of up to 40 workers have started excavating the site, which houses a large network of Roman buildings, discovered by accident last year.
