A Roman rubbish tip has been found - in a suburban back garden.
Garden landscaping work at a family home in Pentrebane, Cardiff, has turned up the remnants of a former drainage site nearly 2,000 years old.
The delighted owner, who asked not to be named, dubbed it 'a glorified Lamby Way' where people dumped their rubbish.
A team of local archaeologists has now dug up 300 shards of pottery of more than five types, hob nails from scandals and old building nails.
