The greatest archeological and historical discoveries are often found in the most unlikely of places. This was the case last December, when construction workers were left in awe while renovating a men’s prison in Gloucester, England.
Intending to tear down and replace the old facility, the crew was forced to halt the project when they unearthed pieces of near-ancient history. So just what, exactly, was down there? Would you believe it was a medieval castle?
This is the old prison in Gloucester, England that was scheduled to be torn down. No one could’ve predicted that a 12th-century castle was hidden underneath it.
The artifacts ranged from pottery shards to bone dice.
History really is hiding everywhere, huh?
Can you believe such a valuable piece of the historical record was right under their feet for centuries? Makes you wonder what else is out there to be found.
