Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Videotext Communications Ltd to carry out archaeological recording and post-excavation analysis on an archaeological evaluation by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ within the Roman town of Cunetio, near Marlborough, Wiltshire (NGR SU 2178 6938). The evaluation was carried out in September 2009.
Cunetio is a Scheduled Monument (AM666) of national importance. Aerial photographs and early geophysical survey, coupled with very limited excavation, have established the ground plan of the town but almost nothing is known of its significance and changing form during the Roman period. The project aimed to carry out a limited programme of non-intrusive investigations and evaluation trenching over three days. Fieldwork consisted of seven machine-excavated trial trenches, geophysical and topographic surveys.
The high quality and substantial nature of Building 1 in the north-west corner of the town was confirmed but little additional dating evidence was recovered. This structure is likely to have consisted of more than a single storey, with a stylish, fully Romanised interior. The remains of Building 8, the possible mansio, survived less well. No firm evidence for the date of its construction was found but there was some evidence to suggest that it was during the early Roman period. This building was probably roofed in stone, again with a Romanised interior.
