Unique “Winged” Roman Structure Discovered in England

An entirely unique ‘winged’ structure has been discovered by archaeologist working in England, just outside of Norfolk. The building has no parallels in the Roman Empire and is clearly distinct from other structures in the Roman world (both within and outside of Britain).

“Generally speaking, (during) the Roman Empire people built within a fixed repertoire of architectural forms,” Prof Bowden

The structure appears to be connected to a villa complex nearby, but archaeologists are still unsure how the structure fits in with the urban landscape.
