Remains of a Roman village have been found in Spain. These remains have come to the fore due to the drying up of a river. Actually, these days it is getting hot in Spain. The entire area is in the grip of severe drought. For this reason, buried structures have started appearing inside rivers for thousands of years.
The remains of a Roman village have been found in the Galicia region of north-western Spain. These remnants have come to the fore due to the steep fall in the water level of the Lima River. Experts claim that these remains found on the banks of the Lima River could be of a military camp. It must have been built by the ancient Romans in about 75 AD. That is, about 1947 years ago.
It is believed that the remains found due to the drying of the river are part of the Roman fort Aquis Querquennis. In about 175 AD, this fort was deserted. After a few years, this area got absorbed in the river.
Last week the Faro de Vigo newspaper captured some drone footage of the area. In it the remains of the village were visible. Aerial photographs showed perfectly organized stone structures. Seeing them, it seems as if they are standing as they are for thousands of years.
According to a report by Atlas Obscura, Aquis Fort had accommodation for about 600 soldiers. Separate barracks were made for all these. A hospital, a temple and thermal baths were also built here.
According to the European Drafted Observatory, nearly three-quarters of Europe is currently on a drought alert. Rome is no exception to this. Earlier, due to the drought, the water level of the Tiber river had gone down considerably and the Nero Bridge buried in the water was also visible. This bridge was built by the Roman ruler Nero during his reign between AD 54 and AD 68.
