An archaeological dig at a Kent fort has uncovered the coastline at the time of the Roman invasion of Britain in 43AD - two miles from today's shore.

The team was excavating a 295ft (90m) stretch of collapsed Roman wall, when they found a small medieval dock.

English Heritage archaeologist Tony Wilmott said they then found a "hard surface", in a water-filled trench, which was the Roman beach.

2 miles from where the beach is now

Just goes to show how very different the worlds maps can be in a such relatively short time in comparison to the age of the earth.

Great find for the team though. I'm sure this will mean they have to get 'dug in' even further into this site.

This report has spread across the MSM quite a lot, which is an achievement in itself what with everything else going on, so this stands out as an important discovery for the history of the Roman empire and mainland Britain.
