LISBON (Reuters) - Portuguese archaeologists digging near one of Lisbon's most iconic restaurants, the Solar dos Presuntos (Manor of Hams), have discovered a large Roman cemetery holding 2,000-year-old skeletons and various ancient artifacts.

The necropolis was found after the restaurant owners decided to expand their establishment, founded in 1974 in Lisbon's historical centre.
