Time Team - High Ham, Somerset

Published by Wessex Archaeology
In March and April 2010 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ at the Langport Ranges, High Ham Somerset (NGR 342287 129500) to investigate the site of the High Ham Roman Villa. The site had been excavated in 1861 by W.W. Munckton and C. Fry, who left relatively detailed plans of their discoveries, including a number of detailed paintings of the exposed mosaics, although their results were never published.
No subsequent investigations of the Site were undertaken until a limited fieldwalking exercise in the 1990s. Then in 2008 a geophysical survey revealed the layout of the villa complex, and Time Team’s programme of works aimed to investigate a number of the resulting geophysical anomalies while clarifying the details and chronology of the villa.
The evaluation was successful in its stated aims in providing a detailed geophysical plan of the wider area around the villa, identifying that it was a much larger complex than initially thought, and by identifying at least two phases of villa construction. The earliest phase is potentially dated on artefactual evidence to the late 2nd to early 3rd centuries AD, but remains slightly ambiguous as only a few short stretches of walling were assigned to the phase (and therefore no coherent overall plan), and no direct dating for these was obtained.
