Google find Roman villa in Mozambique?

Google quickly moved to dismiss the possibility that they’ve helped searchers to find Atlantis off the African Coast with their new ocean-bed mapping. They explained that some apparent gridlines on the maps were just an artifact of the scanning process. However I don’t think they quite meant the explanation to continue:

“It’s true that many amazing discoveries have been made in Google Earth including a pristine forest in Mozambique that is home to previously unknown species and the remains of an Ancient Roman villa,” a Google statement said. (from the BBC news website)

I quite like the idea of a Roman travelling to the south-east of Africa to build himself a villa in the middle of a pristine forest, hindered only by unknown species…..
