Sep 29, 2016 07:49 AM EDT Archaeologists in Japan have made an exciting and not to mention baffling discovery. In the ruins of Katsuren Castle located in Uruma, Okinawa, ancient Roman coins dating back to the 17th century have been uncovered. Does this discovery show a link between the Japanese and the Romans? "It is a strange and interesting find. We don't think that there is a direct link between the Roman Empire and Katsuren Castle, but the discovery confirms how this region had trade relations with the rest of Asia," stated Masaki Yokou in an exclusive report by CNN. Since the excavation that began in 2013, approximately ten coins have been uncovered. Six of the ten coins reportedly date back to 400AD. Additional reports add that eac...
