We’ve been telling people for a long time that Rutland has ‘much in little’ and now there’s more proof, with an internationally significant discovery made here. A rare Roman mosaic – the first of its kind in the UK – has been found in the county. After being studied in secret to keep it safe, the discovery was announced on Thursday 25 November 2021 and designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
