A computer programmer looking at Google Earth satellite images has reportedly discovered the remains of an ancient Roman villa near Sorbelo, Italy.
Luca Mori of Sorbelo was looking at a satellite image of his area, located near Parma, when he noticed unusual shading near his home, the London Telegraph reported Wednesday.
He said the area had an oval shaded form more than 500 yards long, with some unusual rectangular shadows nearby.
Archaeologists subsequently determined the rectangular lines were, most likely, a buried structure and the oval area was likely the course of an ancient river.

Yeah sure, and if it's a power cell depository warehouse from the ancients, who's gonna look bad?
A large Parmasan cheese factory, perhaps?
The freeware version is 11-12Mb, and the system requirements are interesting...
Thanks! Will add to the catalog, but this looks like one that got posted (older thread) last week. :')
LOL! You GGG guys are always on the job! :-)
