Olympic House

The new archaeological excavations have also led to the discovery of a Roman-era pontoon, 40 metres in length and made up of several thousands of stones held in place by around 400 large oak stakes, which are remarkably well preserved. This monumental structure probably marked out the limits of the port basin of Lousonna. Fewer than 10 of these structures are known to exist throughout the entire Roman Empire, and are rarely so well preserved.
