A ROMAN coin has revealed that one of Spain’s most emblematic monuments is younger than originally thought.

The Segovia Aqueduct – a UNESCO World Heritage site – is now believed to have been built between 112 and 116 AD and not the previously thought 98 AD.

The new date was confirmed after a minted coin from the same period was discovered during an analysis of archeological materials removed from an excavation carried out in 1998.
