Roman dig to showcase "level of history" in Ewell, England

Archaeologists believe that there had been continuous occupation of the area around Ewell Village in England since the 4th Century. Now a three-week dig hopes to uncover evidence of a Roman settlement along the road which ran from Chichester to London. (video)

The Church Meadow project hopes to find out more about the Roman settlement and the history of the area. At the conclusion of the project, the land will revert to St. Mary's Church.
