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 buildings and continuing to add to the plan of each complex.
In April our fist dig will focus on the main domestic buildings of a rural villa in which a small bath house was discovered on in previous seasons. Our second site, in August, 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.
