Episode Summary

EDIT
Standish, Gloucestershire
AIRED:
Going Upmarket with the Romans.
For some years now, local metal detectorist and amateur archaeologist Paul Bevan has been discovering large amounts of Iron-Age and Roman material on his land at Standish, in Gloucestershire. His searches of his field have yielded Roman brooches, pottery, mosaic tesserae, roof tiles and coins. In the summer of 2003, he even dug his own trench to investigate further. Unfortunately for him, he chose he hottest spell on record in England. He found what he thought was an Iron-Age surface, but the clay soil baked hard in the heat and he had to close the trench to protect the archaeology. There were more than enough finds already, though, to interest Time Team in the site. First impressions, particularly the quantity of Roman building materials and other finds, pointed to the presence of a sizeable villa somewhere nearby.moreless
