Description

In 1838, navvies laying Brunel's Great Western Railway found two Roman floor mosaics, probably from a villa, at Lower Basildon, in Berkshire.

The mosaics were broken up and the site almost forgotten until recent aerial photographs revealed a series of crop marks in the fields by the railway.

Did Brunel's Great Western cut through a Roman villa? And what else might Time Team find in these fields?
