Actually, when the people in norther Europe were still living in huts and wearing skins, the Roman invaders had beautiful villages with heated water and floors.

What that tells you, their mosaics still endure to this time all over England every time they dig a site.

By the way, I dug up a lot of artifacts here myself, I did not use any of that stuff, I am not interested in doing an official dig or making money selling anything I find, It is interesting enough just being able to dig things up.

Archaeology is not just about digging stuff up , it's also about the context of Archaeological finds , without context all you have is artifacts without the explanation of whys and wheres.

Context: the position of an archaeological find in time and space, established by measuring and assessing its association, matrix and provenience. Context includes and assessment of how an archaeological find got there and what has happened to it since it was buried in the ground.

I had no idea that glass could stay together that long without falling apart. Even a little.

How long does glass actually last???

I am not an archeologist and from what I have found out, if you find something on your property, they will ban you from digging around here and they take all your artifacts, you have to be careful about that kind of stuff. I would like to get with the group I belong to locally to track the stones piled in rows under the ground. I would like to find the pattern they have, they may have just been lining trails, or they may be set to a pattern that brings them to a central point. It would only cost me about a hundred bucks for my share of wear and tear on the ground scanner. The labor is free, but I will have to help too, the machine cost quite a bit and it does not last forever so I don't mind paying that.

The part that is interesting is that there seems to be chipped and ground stones mosiaced to the top of some of the stones in those rows, I have all the rocks from the loam around one of the separate rocks by an old stream bed and when you put them together it looks like a turkey. I was hoping for a bowl but got a fowl instead...Oh well, just one letter off. I wasn't aware that the Indians ground stones to make stuff, but talked to a couple of Indians here, a few medicine men and some that make traditional tools and they told me what these things probably are and that they still make that kind of stuff in their traditional tool making classes...so nothing rare except that there are lots of the things here on my land. I met with at least ten Indians to identify these things, keepers of the fire, specialists in traditional tool making, and two medicine men. They all said the same thing....they were not made by the Indians that are here now, it comes from an earlier tribe because the style is different than their style. They gave me a couple of names, Indian tribes that were here about fifteen hundred years ago till about eleven hundred years ago. All said it is very bad luck to sell the rocks or move them elsewhere off the property but it was ok to take them out to show others.

So that is what I do, my avatar is one of those stones, the head of a hammer that I made a handle for. If I were to validate it it would cost about three grand and it is the only rock worth much and it is worthless without validation. I like worthless myself, if I spent all that money I would have to sell it to pay for the validation and site survey. All of the other ground stone implements and rocks that are mosiaced are not very valuable, it would not be worth me blowing three grand on it. According to the Indians, my location is probably a ceremonial site, they did not bury the dead on the top of the hills but the stones I found in three or four to a spot show someone buried the four direction pocket stones at this site, they would haul them to certain places like this and bury them in the directions...NSEW. I asked why only three sometimes and they told me some were made of bone. It sure was interesting researching all of this and talking to the elders. The stones will remain on this property as long as I live.

That's beautiful; thanks for sharing.
I can't believe it didn't break at all!

Underneath Heerlen when I lived in Limburg was a fairly nicely preserved roman bath complex (foundations/low walls) :
