Excavations on grounds of Roman villa in Chedworth
Excavations on grounds of Roman villa in Chedworth

Archaeologists spent two weeks on the site of a former Roman villa at Chedworth to try to discover the remains of a structure underground for the first time in decades.

A team of archaeologists from the National Trust conducted excavations in the west wing of the villa near the Nymphaeum. The nymphaeum was the end of the water pipe, a kind of fountain, often decorated with great splendor, where from a height of several floors, through facades decorated with statues and columns, water fell into flat pools.

Scientists hoped to dig into the mosaic, which has probably been underground for 1600 years. The excavations are part of a five-year plan to better explore the northern part of the villa and learn about the condition of the preserved structure. Scientists are also looking for an answer to the question: how best to protect the remains.
