Artifact discovered in museum

Building work on the new 10.5 million City and County Museum site in Lincoln has revealed the biggest Roman mosaic found in the city for a century.

The mosaic was unearthed last month during excavations at what will eventually form the goods lift at the new museum site in central Lincoln.

This is a bit of good luck even in a country which is heaving with Roman antiquities. It is also refreshing to learn relics can be discovered in museums outside Baghdad.
