ROMAN HIGHWAY UNEARTHED IN GREECE

Archaeologists have uncovered a major Roman artery stretching 535 miles across modern-day Albania, Macedonia and Greece. The stone paved road is thought to be the Roman's ancient equivalent of an interstate highway, Associated Press reports.

Built between 146 and 120 B.C. under the supervision of the top Roman official in Macedonia, proconsul Gaius Egnatius, the highway ran from the Adriatic coast in what is now Albania to modern Turkey, giving Rome quick access to the eastern provinces of its empire.

According to AP, the road was dotted with inns and post stations every thirty or forty miles. "These post stations had spare beasts, as well as vets, grooms and shoe smiths," archaeologist Polyxeni Tsatsopoulou told The Associated Press.
