Published by Wessex Archaeology
Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Videotext Communications Ltd to carry out archaeological recording and post-excavation analysis on an evaluation at Coberley Villa in Gloucestershire (centred on NGR 396750 215200) as part of the ‘Time Team’ television series.
Eleven trenches were excavated to investigate the extent, character and condition of the Coberley villa remains. The trenches targeted a mosaic pavement discovered by metal detectorists in 2003 and structural remains indicated by geophysical surveying to exist in the vicinity of the mosaic.
The remains of a demolished villa were recorded which appeared to have been H shaped in plan. The evidence suggests that the north and south wings were possibly later additions to an original structure. The mosaic pavement appeared to be within a triclinium. The central panel had been removed, possibly evidence of Christian iconoclastic destruction.
