Mosaics belonging to the Roman age have come to light during excavations in Amasya, located on the Black Sea coast of Turkey.

Although all of them agree to have greek inscriptions, show different decorations. One of the mosaics includes a diamond and others are decorated with apples, birds and geometric designs. Since there are too many natural representations in them, the researchers think that they were not created for a particular purpose.

A 20 square meter mosaic shows the quality of work that was done in the past. Each piece of stone or tessera has been cut into a rectangular or prismatic shape that together with each other have made up the fabulous mosaic.

The mosaics will be sent to the Amasya Museum as they reveal the rich potential of the place.

I was born in Madrid on August 27, 1988 and since then I started a work of which there is no example. Fascinated by both numbers and letters and a lover of the unknown, that is why I am a future graduate in Economics and Journalism, interested in understanding life and the forces that have shaped it. Everything is easier, more useful and more exciting if, with a look at our past, we can improve our future and for that… History.
