A stone head possibly depicting a Roman god was found by Durham University archaeologists at Binchester Fort in northeastern England.


An 1,800-year-old stone carving of what may be the head of a Roman god was recently found in an ancient garbage dump, British archaeologists announced Wednesday.
An undergraduate student at Durham University discovered the largely intact head during an archaeological dig at the Binchester Roman Fort, a major Roman Empire fort built around the year 100 in northeastern England’s County Durham.
