Nimes, France At the heart of the ancient town of Nimes, in Southern France, some building works had uncovered a unique and fascinating piece of ancient history. The find of these pieces is dated on the era when the town was a principal city of Roman Gaul. The excavators discovered two magnificent Roman mosaics. The Roman mosaics are dated on the second century A.D. and they were located by the National Institute of Preventive Archaeological Research. The smaller of the two mosaics is among the best-preserved examples in all Roman Gaul. The wall is decorated. Under Augustus reign, the style is changed and so the geometric figures are "connected" to plant decorative themes, wicker, meanders, ect... In fact the decorations are extended to the entire floor, characterized by the repetition of circles, medallions and the form is square.
