Roman Villa Found Near Parma

A man playing around with Google Earth was surprised to find that his property had remains of an Roman villa under it. Good and bad news. Good news is that we have a new excavation site available for study. Bad news is that if Italy has extreme environuts like America, this man will probably be forced off of his property to "protect" his site. And, he'll be accused of trying to exploit the natives by profiting from sale of artifacts. He'll be hounded by these groups for years until he finally dies from harassment.
