The last thing archaeologists expected to find in Verona, Italy while conducing excavations at a vineyard in Verona was a well-preserved mosaic floor dating back to the third century A.D.

The archaeology team discovered the tiles, as well as portions of the villa’s foundation, just a few meters beneath the vineyard’s surface. To make this finding accessible, researchers will partner with local authorities and the vineyard’s owners, since the process will likely require both slots of time as well as resources.
