"The remains of a high-quality Romano-British butcher’s business and centre for crafts have been unearthed by archaeologists in Devon (https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/devon).Experts believe the fourth-century abattoir was set up to prepare the best cuts of beef that were transported to customers miles away along a Roman road found at the site.
They suggest the butchers at Ipplepen, near Newton Abbot in south Devon, worked alongside a string of talented craftspeople specialising in deer antler, leather and textiles.
Previous digs at Ipplepen have unearthed Roman coins, a stretch of Roman road and the remnants of vessels (https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jun/22/roman-coins-devon-map-empire-ipplepen) from France and the Mediterranean once full of wine, olive oil and garum – fish sauce.
The site is significant because it has undermined the notion that ancient Rome’s influence had not stretched further south than Exeter."

Another Coincidence.

I get Devon in my results too, and many Italians get UK %s @ Liv. dna.

... maybe it’s Roman Ancestry in the Brits instead.
