Wow, it's remarkably well preserved, isn't it.....any soil analysis done?

Unbelievable that I unsuspectingly drank gallons of beer on top of a Roman war ship. Now I know what went wrong at carnival every year...I had been seasick! Big Grin

Jasper, why did the Roman sail underground? Was this ship possibly part of a new form of public transport? The "navis suburbis" perhaps?
