London, Apr.24 (ANI): Roman altar stones dating back almost 2000 years have been found at a cricket pavilion in Musselburgh, East Lothian.

According to the BBC, the stones are being described as the most significant find of their kind in the past 100 years.

Renovations were planned at the pavilion but archaeologists had to survey the protected building before work could begin.

Their unearthing of the stones and other artefacts has postponed the planned developments on the pavilion.

George Findlater, senior inspector of ancient monuments at Historic Scotland, said: "The stones have carvings and quite possibly inscriptions which can have a wealth of information on them, a lot of data about the people and their religion at that time." (ANI)
