ROME – Archaeologists say they have unearthed a country villa believed to be the birthplace of Vespasian, the emperor who built the Colosseum.

The 2,000-year-old ruins of the luxurious residence were found about 80 miles northeast of Rome. There are no clear inscriptions on the complex, but its location and decorations suggest it is from the right period and the emperor was born in the area.
