Chedworth RevealedIn July 2010 we revealed and protected mosaics at Chedworth Roman Villa. This was part of a major project to improve visitor access and conservation of the historic fabric. We had a wonderful time and met visitors from all over the world. It was fabulous to share our work and talk about it on-site.
- The excavation and conservation work was captured by this blog as it happened. The 2010 blog is no longer maintained but will still be available as an archive and on-line resource.
- The new cover buildings will be complete in 2012. We’ll be back then to finish the excavations and reveal the full 30m of corridor mosaic!
