Our colleagues [and now friends] at the University of Lewisham have published this image in the renowned international and peer-reviewed journal, Tractus Romanae.
Following several years of patient excavation at a location within the known former city limits of Londinium, archaeologists chanced across this mosaic, located beneath a former slaughter house near Marsala Road. Radiocarbon dating places the mosaic at 115 BCE, an incredible finding since the earliest settlement is dated to at least 150 years later. Professor U.R Jo-King explains: ‘It is clear early settlers had contact with some extra-terrestrial object, perhaps indeed a Rocket Ship, as seen in this splendid rendition in mosaic. Further research is necessary to confirm this extraordinary discovery that may well change the course of human history’.
