A Mosaic Floor Built in Ancient Rome Found After Excavations in Verona Shakes Things Up

2020 is not a totally depressing year after the latest find in Verona Province, in Italy. The mosaic villa floor that was uncovered in the Valpolicella region dates back to 100AD. It was built during the Roman Empire.

Myko Clelland (Historian) sent the tweet that turned viral within fourteen hours and had over 266 thousand likes and 58 thousand retweets. Myko said that it was complete and not so damaged, making it rare. Normally, the finds are worn down and damaged with missing parts. The organization behind the discovery is Soprintendenza di Verona, who unearthed some other ancient finds in the area.

The family that contacted him with the find should be given the credit. Through nature’s turbulent weather patterns with time, such historical finds get covered with layers of dirt and debris. Man’s ways of building bury them too. For example, Mesopotamia has hilly places that were previous buildings but got ruined and buried with time.

A Twitter user shared a find from years past of Villa Romana uncovered in Sicily. The treasures help humanity to connect with civilizations that existed before ours, where our ancestors lived. No value can be placed on such.

The comments ranged from inquiries to jokes. Most of them were positive.
