A massive Roman mosaic in southern Turkey has been uncovered by archaeologists. The find proves that the ancient Empire’s influence reached far across the European continent. Uncovered by a farmer in his field next to a still-standing bathing structure, the mosaic is 1,600 square feet of meticulously crafted ancient workmanship, built at the height of the Roman Empire’s power in the third and fourth centuries AD.
“This region is not well understood in terms of history and archaeology,” University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Michael Hoff says.
Kind of an odd design (you can’t really increase the size of the photo unfortunately).
