A Roman street was the focus of attention for hundreds of visitors who turned up for an open day at an archaeological excavation site in Worcester city centre on Tuesday.
The cobbled road has been unearthed at the former NCP car park in The Butts along with other Roman treasures dating to between the second and fourth century.
The four week excavation, which ends on Friday, September 5, is being carried out by the University of Birmingham and sponsored by Miller Homes who plan to build apartments on the land.
Gary Coates, the project manager, said the team of seven archaeologists who had been working on four areas at the site had been amazed by the extent of their findings.
