Strata: Portraits of Humanity

features cave diving and Roman villa

See archaeologists dive on a submerged cave in the Philippines and watch English excavators uncover a Roman villa in the November 2016 edition of Strata: Portraits of Humanity, available online and on TV: (1) Archaeologists dive on Marigondon Cave, best known as one of the most famous diving spots in Cebu City, Philippines. It would have been above sea level during the last glacial periods of 22,000 and 38,000 BP so it could have been inhabited then. (2) Archaeologists carried out excavations over the summer of 2014 on the route to bypass Cannington, a town in West Somerset, England. They found the remains of three Roman buildings, including a high-status villa complete with under-floor heating and evidence of painted wall plaster and a slate roof.
