Discovery of Statue Head

I read about this in BBC news and decided to google for more information. And am I glad I did.

I came across Archaelogy.org which had a more indepth coverage of the find, along with a little bit of historical background.

The story in question is the discovery of a statue head of a Roman Empress dating back to pre-200 A.D.

The description of the statue, its location and significance make a refreshing read, when compared to the somewhat tabloid-ish coverage in BBC.
