Archaeologists in Colchester have found what could be the biggest Roman arcade ever built in Britain.
The arches and columns supported a massive gateway to a temple dedicated to the emperor Claudius.
It was eventually razed to the ground by the Iceni tribe led by Queen Boadicea.
"The arcade is the largest thing of its kind that we know of in Britain.
In fact, there was a similar structure found in France very recently and that is about 70 metres long - ours is 120 metres long.
