Ancient Roman road unearthed

Plus 3 skeletons, all from 1st-2nd century BC

(ANSA) - Rome, February 21 - An ancient Roman road has been found along with three skeletons under a McDonald's at Frattochie south of Rome.
    The finds, dating back to the first-second century BC, were unearthed during the construction of the fast-food outlet in 2014.
    They have now been presented for public viewing under the McDonald's.
    The 40-metre stretch of road probably belongs to a side road off the famed Appian Way, archaeologists say.
