Ruins of Praetorian Barracks Uncovered in Rome Subway Upgrade

The link below leads to an illustrated article from the Canadian Global News network on the unexpected discovery of a Praetorian Guard barracks in Rome, resulting from the ongoing upgrade to the City’s subway system (opens in a new window or tab). The ruins are impressive for the wall decorations and mosaic floors, and are said to date from the time of Hadrian – http://globalnews.ca/news/2703631/in-photos-rare-roman-relics-unearthed-in-rome-subway-construction/
