Abstract:
The mosaic pavement found here in 1963 almost certainly depicts Christ, and an exploratory excavation in 1964 revealed its association with a substantial 4th cent building complex, possibly of religious function. Observation as the pavement was lifted suggested that some areas had been laid in prefabricated sections. Pottery and the stylistic evidence of the mosaic suggest a date between AD 315-50, but stratified dating material should be sought beneath the bed of the pavement in the hope of setting Hinton and the related villas of SW Britain in their context. The demand for mosaic pavements in this area could arise from an influx of emigré villa-owners after the mid-3rd cent Germanic invasions of Gaul. Makeshift repairs to the Hinton pavement, and the dwindling coins at Woodyates, reflect the generally disrupted economic situation. Later ploughing reduced the site to its present fragmentary condition. AT
