Shopping in the Past

While building a shopping mall in norther France, construction workers unearthed and large frieze that dated from the second century AD. As excavations picked up a Roman sanctuary was unearthed. 

It turned out to be huge. Its facade was 10 meters high and 70 long, with multiple depictions of gods and goddesses of the period carved into the stone work.

No word on whether or not they built the shopping mall!
