They made the wonderful discovery while building a parking lot

It is believed that the English count brought the work from Italy in the 18th century.

An 1,800-year-old Roman-era marble head was found during construction at Burghley House near Stamford, England. RK News reports. The statue depicts a woman.

The discovery was made in April 2023 by excavator Greg Crowley, and according to experts, the statue dates back to the first or second century. Two weeks later, the bust to which the head originally belonged was also found.

Supposedly an iron stake was attached to the head in the 18th century, which would have helped to repair it, and Italian antique dealers of the time often used a similar intervention – National Geographic writes.

Researchers believe that the statue was brought by a local resident during one of his trips to Italy in the 1860s.

As they write, how the statue ended up in the ground is a mystery, and it is not yet clear how long it remained in the ground until it was finally found in 2023, when a new parking lot was constructed.

The finds were carefully cleaned and the two parts were then joined together. According to experts, the statue depicts a beautiful Roman woman, but her exact identity has not yet been determined, according to the article.
