An old Roman mosaic floor was uncovered beneath an Italian farm.

A Roman mosaic was discovered beneath a farm in Verona, Italy. Architects found the treasure in the hills above the village of Negrar di Valpolicella in northern Italy. About a century after the remnants of an old villa were discovered, the discovery was made.

Archaeologists believe the elaborate flooring was once part of a larger structure. It was discovered “after decades of futile attempts.”

Experts are currently determining the safest way to excavate the stunning mosaic floor, which will likely date back to the third century AD.
