Episode Summary

EDIT
Basildon, Berkshire
AIRED:
The Inter-City Villa.

When Brunel built his railway in the Goring Gap in 1838, the remains of a Roman villa, complete with mosaics were discovered. Historical evidence suggests that the mosaics were broken up by the navvies who built the railway, and sold them "under the potent influence of the current coin of the realm".

The Team try to find out if any of the mosaics remain, or if they - along with the villa - were totally destroyed when the railway was built.moreless
