Roman Sorbolo

Italian computer programmer, Luca Mori made a sensible inference using Google Earth to unearth a Roman villa.

His curiosity was sparked by unusual shading by his home in Sorbolo, Parma. He contacted local archaeologists who investigated and confirmed it was once the location of a Roman villa.

"At first I thought it was a stain on the photograph," 47-year-old Mr Mori explained. "But when I zoomed in, I saw that there was something under the earth."
