A Roman glass mosaic mural dating back more than 1,600 years has been discovered.

In September 2019, the village of Boxford in West Berkshire, England, suddenly welcomed a group of archaeologists. The group happily paid a sum of money to requisition their farmland and began a long excavation near a local Roman ruin. In the first few days, the archaeological team did not find any valuable cultural relics, and the residents on the sidelines advised them, saying that there were no relics there, so they should give up. Because in the local history, their village is a backward place. They have lived in the village for a long time and have never heard of any glorious history here. What shocked everyone was that just when the examination was about to be abandoned, a large number of precious historical relics were unearthed: exquisite Roman frescoes, animal bones used by the Romans, bronze heads, etc. The Roman fresco excavated this time is a fresco with a remarkable Roman style, five meters long and six meters wide. When the painting was just excavated, the archaeological team carefully observed the details of the mural over and over again, and finally determined that it was a Roman Glass mosaic mural from about 1,600 years ago.

The influence and significance of glass mosaic mural.

The history of the glass mosaic murals can be traced back to the 4th to 5th centuries BC, and it is the artistic crystallization of the splendid civilization of Greece. Later, the mighty ancient Roman Empire collapsed and annexed Greece, absorbing the art and culture of many Greek civilizations. Glass mosaic mural has thus become a unique technique of the Romans. Due to the vast territory of ancient Rome, the dissemination of glass mosaic murals is extremely large. From Europe to Africa, from the Mediterranean Sea to East Asia, traces of Glass mosaic murals have appeared, which have had a huge impact on the artistic development of various civilizations in the world.

Even in modern times, the technique of covering photos with multiple superimposed pixel blocks has been influenced by glass mosaic murals, hence the name mosaic technique. In addition, due to the extremely high technical requirements of glass mosaic murals, only the Romans could master this technique at that time, and the Romans never spread this technique to outsiders. Therefore, mosaics are also seen as evidence of the conquest or occupation of certain areas by the ancient Romans. Therefore, the discovery of this Roman glass mosaic mural is of great historical significance to the UK, and the British Daily Mail even hailed it as "one of the greatest historical discoveries in the UK in the past 50 years."
