Early Roman Pagan Site Uncovered in England
There’s been an interesting archeological find in Southwell, England, for those of us interested in Christian origins, at least.
The ruins of a Roman temple have been unearthed dating back to 43AD.
“Southwell could prove to be important for research into the development and transition of religion from the Roman through to modern times.
“We need to extract the maximum amount of information from the area before it’s lost forever.”
The discovery is only the second Roman pagan temple to be found in Notts after a previous discovery in 1963 near the new East Midlands Parkway Station.”
Personally I’m not sure they will find much relating to Christianity, per se. Christianity really didn’t get going until the 2nd century. I believe Origen (born 185AD) wrote about Britain accepting Christianity, so that would put it in the early 3rd century.
