there also were loads of pottery, urns, keys, tools , coins and jewellery from the roman times and up
still, this reminded me of some time back when the neighbour had mentioned a place there'd been a roman village nearby: just drive past Lann's house and turn right. saxon and i headed out.
drove around, but well, 3rd time lucky, turns out the neighbours' instructions sucked as the road actually veered off Lann's driveway...
and no... there's no 'round shape', the road just goes around a small promontory overlooking the area. drove past it, down the hill - and ended up in yet another vineyard.... well, this was getting to be a bad habit, with wendy feeling every bump and lump in the rutted track. turned around and slowly crawled along until i spied some bricks sticking out of the rows of vines. interesting.
i stopped and there is all kinds of pottery bits all over the place! am i the only one finding that bizarre? they're growing vines right on top of an ancient village. anyway, brought home a few pieces and put them into my calla pot, so i have roman, pottery shards in a flower pot.
this is the view the romans had, but the hill is actually quite steep, and road way down there: the perspective is way off. but then again, there might have been a forest there.
