South Oxfordshire Archaeological Group’s (SOAG) longest running project, the 3rd- 4th century Roman villa building has been excavated over many years and includes more than 10 rooms and a small bath house. In 2015 we are focusing on the eastern end of the building and part of the villa enclosure.
This is an excavation that is popular with diggers of all ages and experience and provides a friendly introduction to excavation for beginners and interesting archaeology for more experienced volunteers.
The site is open every Sunday from June to the end of October. There are usually between 15 and 20 volunteers on site.
SOAG is an active archaeology group and has other fieldwork projects planned for 2015 including the investigation of another potential Roman site and an Anglo Saxon site, details on the website.
