Roman mosaic floor found... in the Cotswolds

It apparently dates from the 4th century, and was found when two men walking across a freshly-ploughed field noticed several tesserae in the dirt. About ten inches below the surface they found the mosaic:
"We revealed the leg of an animal and the bit we uncovered was not damaged at all. We didn’t go any further because we are not professional archaeologists."
