Come back to me when they find things on Pompeii. I know it is in Italy but we can learn about volcanoes that way.

A Roman Villa?

In France?

Do the guys on Oak Island know about this?

Could this be the key to proving that there is a vast Templar treasure on Oak Island?

Man, it must be hard to build anything in the old world.

You can't build anywhere without running into some historical thingamajigger.

A university buddy of mine, back in the day, claimed he found a coin at an archeological dig that was 2,022 years old. He said the date on the coin read 1 BC. I knew right away he was lying.

Transalpine Gaul?  Not exactly shocking, but nice frescoes are usually interesting enough.

Was it named Bob?

1-2 A.D.?  What, did they find it buried with a calendar?

How did the determine the age that precisely?

I travelled through that area a couple of years ago.  It's chock-a-block with Roman stuff.  Nice area.

When we redid our kitchen floor all I found was asbestos tile. Wonder if I should let the museum know?
