    A Roman mosaic floor has been discovered under a vineyard in northern Italy after decades of searching.

    Surveyors in the commune of Negrar di Valpolicella north of Verona published images of the well-preserved tiles buried under metres of earth.

    According to officials, scholars first found evidence of a Roman villa there more than a century ago.

    Technicians are still gently excavating the site to see the full extent of the ancient building.
