The team from Leicester University and Historic England returned to the Rutland Roman Villa site this summer and were not disappointed. A series of trenches across the site were targeted to flesh out understanding of this high-status villa community discovered in 2020.

Finds included another mosaic (a geometric design more familiar to those in the Nene Valley) and a large aisled hall. The archaeologists claimed to have found the earliest known “barn conversion”.

We’ve added an update and second video to our web page describing this site.
