Abstract:
As part of a programme of consolidation work at Kings Weston Roman Villa detailed recording of the hypocaust system in Room XI , part of the villa's east wing was undertaken. An opportunity to expose a tessalated pavement originally uncovered in 1948 was also taken, in order to assess its condition and devise a strategy for its future protection. The fieldwork revealed that there had been considerable deterioration to the preservation of elements of the tessallated pavement in Room XI. Recording of the construction of the new tessellated floor, which was laid as a result of the remodelling of the villa and the insertion of the hypocaust in Room XI, revealed a simple sequence of redeposited subsoil, sand and mortar. The floor was of clearly inferior quality when compared to the complex make-up of the primary tessellated floors found in the west wing. A vessel found during the investigation clearly did not fit into the known Iron Age and Romano-British ceramic traditions and thus was tentatively suggested as being of Dark Age date, supporting the amended date for male skeleton recovered from the Room XI flue. Examination of the flue walls showed them to be in poor condition. A test pit was also excavated against the west range in association with the programme of investigation and this showed that the earth bank to the south was made ground and thus archaeologically sterile.
