    Model of New Museum

July 2003

Building work has revealed the biggest Roman mosaic found in the city for a century.

The mosaic was unearthed last month during excavations at what will eventually form the good lift for the museum in central Lincoln.

Further work has since unearthed more of the red and white mosaic,

which measures four metres square. Experts now believe that it formed the corridor of a luxurious Roman Town House dating from the third or fourth century AD.  2000 years old
