The remains of a flooded Roman camp have reappeared after a prolonged drought in Spain caused water levels to plummet.
Known as Aquis Querquennis, the camp was flooded in 1948 to create the As Conchas Reservoir.
Usually parts of the colony can be seen sporadically throughout the year as water levels rise and fall.
But, following the worst drought the country has known in decades, all the archaeological remains are now visible.
The Roman settlement is thought to have been built in AD 75, before being abandoned around AD 120. It was used as a temporary fort and military fortifications while the Romans built the Via Nova road nearby.
The site was lost in the sands of time until the 1920s when a local archaeologist found it and began excavations.
But during the construction of a hydroelectric dam downstream, the site was flooded and became a reservoir.
Weeks of scorching heat in Spain have caused rivers and lakes across the country to dry up.
Other treasures have also been revealed by falling water levels.
A stone circle thought to date back to 500 BC. re-emerged from the depths of the Valdecanas Reservoir southwest of Madrid.
Officially called Dolmen de Guadalperal but dubbed the “Spanish Stonehenge”, they have only reappeared for the fourth time since they were flooded in 1963.
Elsewhere in Spain, a flooded village known as Aceredo has also reappeared.
The city was flooded in 1992 to make way for a reservoir, but given the relentless heat of the year, its buildings are once again exposed.
In fact, some of its former residents have even returned to look around.
