UPDATE: It is a pity, but I have to report that the road discovered below was in fact only 18th Century. As a result of this more recent dating, it was not deemed worthy of saving. However, we are grateful of a brief glimpse into the past.
A small slice of history has been unearthed in my home city. It had been just a short way beneath our feet and we never knew! A Roman or Saxon road has been found under excavation works in Victoria Square as part of the Midland Metro expansion works.
