All roads lead to Rome...

2,000-year-old Roman road revealed by building work in Rochester

Building work in a busy town centre has revealed a pristine section of a Roman road, dating back almost 2,000 years

Award-winning conservationist and developer Mark Lucas and his son Zac bought the unit to renovate and convert into a shop - without knowing for certain the road was there.

The pair were tipped off about the potentially historic find at the bottom of the five-storey Grade II listed building by the previous owner, and have now been able to reveal the section of road.

The unit sits on an ancient Roman road in Rochester, Kent, which once took legions of soldiers from the coast to London.
