  • U.S. military volunteers help uncover Roman history

    Not much on what they found here, but this sort of thing should be done a lot more often.

    And that soil looks like hell.

    WIESBADEN, Germany -- They came, they dug, and they sifted through thousands of years of European history.

    With construction crews chomping at the bit to lay the foundations for a new $133 million U.S. Army housing area just outside Wiesbaden Army Airfield, time is running short for German archaeologists seeking to uncover remnants of past settlements.

    After having spent several months in the fall and spring sifting through soil which revealed several Roman wells, the foundations of a villa rustica (Roman farm complex) and various artifacts, members of the Hessen archaeology team put out a call for volunteers in the U.S. community to join in the documentary project.
    Every 10 years a great man.
    Who paid the bill?

    When all else fails, always ask the Americans.
