ENGINEERS repairing a York sewer found more than they bargained for when they uncovered a Roman mosaic floor.
A 120-metre section of damaged Victorian sewer in Toft Green was in the process of being replaced when workers spotted the mosaic tiles.
Work immediately stopped and a team of archaeologists stepped in to carry out a detailed study of the site, confirming that engineers had stumbled upon a Roman mosaic floor, dating back to the 3rd to 4th Centuries AD.
After two weeks of excavations the floor has been painstakingly removed.
