Not quite sure where to put this, but as it was just posted up on the interenet, I suppose this will due until the nods move it to a better place...

I just found it interesting that they found a winged structure in England that may date back to Roman times to be used as a temple of sorts. Seems the archaeologists are a bit baffled as it has no known parallels.

A snippet from story:




The winged shape of the building appears to be unique in the Roman Empire, with no other example known. "It's very unusual to find a building like this where you have no known parallels for it," Bowden told LiveScience. "What they were trying to achieve by using this design is really very difficult to say."

The building appears to have been part of a complex that includes a villa to the north and at least two other structures to the northeast and northwest. An aerial photograph suggests the existence of an oval or polygonal building with an apse located to the east.


For those that like the historical stuff, I hope you enjoy the read. Any thoughts?

It looks to me that the winged structure is winged as in north wing, east wing, west wing.

I may be wrong but are you reading this as aircraft wing?

It is interesting though.

I have to admit my brain superimposed "creature" over structure


This is pretty interesting. I do know that some people will build structures from places they like, sometimes just as an experiment to see how it would work or what not.

Take here for example, we have more than a couple of the stuccoed buildings with the red tile on top. I would definitely build one as I think they are aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

Yes I do as well, seems some minds on ATS would like to chew on this little mystery.
ATS Speculation at best.
I know we have quite a few ancient mystery buffs around here.
