Wow, this is just amazing. I sometimes envy people who live in areas where history can just be "stumbled upon" in this kind of way.

 Yeah, no kidding!

The closest I can get to something like that is finding Native American spearheads in my back yard.  Which hasn't happened to me in decades.

The fact that it looks to be in fantastic condition is amazing.

That is absolutely gorgeous, and in great condition to boot!  I wonder what the rest of it looks like, and what else they'll find?  If it was part of a bath complex, I'm sure there is a lot more in both the mosaic and artefact department.

Thanks for posting this :]

 Yeah! I was excited about the fact that there are other buildings around it.
