Romano British Villa

Romano British Villa - Oxfordshire

Broughton Castle Estate, Oxfordshire


Time Team returned in 2021 to dig a huge Roman villa in Oxfordshire. The site was recently discovered by metal detectorist and amateur archaeologist Keith Westcott. Various finds from mosaic tesserae and hypocaust flue tiles to a sarcophagus suggest a large villa of high status on this site. Broughton has presented the extremely rare opportunity to investigate what appears to be an untouched and well-preserved Roman villa with the latest technology, techniques and approaches. As well as investigating the villa, we seek to place it within its wider context in the landscape.
