    Roman settlement in England extended further than once thought



    See:
    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...f-roman-empire

    "The remains of a high-quality Romano-British butcher’s business and centre for crafts have been unearthed by archaeologists in 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 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.
