Archeoscan run a number of digs throughout the year. This year we will once again be returning to two Roman sites in South Gloucestershire that we have explored over the past few years. Significant Roman buildings have been uncovered at each site. This year we will be continuing to explore the main domestic areas of the higher status buildings on the sites and continuing to add to the plan of each complex.
In April our fist dig will focus on the main living areas of a rural villa close to where we uncovered a small bath suite in previous seasons. Our second site, later in the year, will continue to explore a range of Roman buildings enclosed by a large boundary wall located on the edge of the Cotswolds close to Bristol and Bath. At the end of the 2017 season we glimpsed a stone building with painted wall plaster. 2018 will focus on understanding this structure.
