Loupian's Roman Ruins in Languedoc, France

Here are photos of beautiful mosaic floors of a recently discovered Roman villa dating back to the 400′s AD. It’s located in a town called Loupian which is near Sete, a coastal city. I was surprised to find such well-preserved floors dating back 1,500 years. The villa was discovered by a farmer ploughing his land. When he was ploughing through the dirt he kept seeing specks of color in the earth which turned out to be peices of the villa’s multicolored mosaic floors. Unfortunately, the plough damaged large sections of the floors.
