Roman city wall found by chance

Breaking News

Archaeologists who set out to put up a safety fence at Rochester's medieval castle have unexpectedly uncovered a Roman city wall. The team had "barely taken the turf off when they unearthed a solid mass of stone masonry", Medway Council said.

Castle archaeologist Graham Keevill called it "a very important discovery". He said: "We don't have many Roman city walls surviving in England. To get an unexpected one like this is fantastic. It is also a perfect example."
