Blenheim Palace in England, now a World Heritage Site, was built between 1705 and 1722 as the country for the Dukes of Marlborough. The estate includes extensive parks and gardens that surround the English Baroque-style palace. Recently, an antiques expert visiting the palace noticed an unusual flower pot—which turned out to be an ancient Roman sarcophagus.
