Gloucester Update

Between April and June 2012 a team from Wessex Archaeology’s Sheffield office carried out the excavation of two sites on the Severn Trent Pipeline between Mythe and Mitcheldean, Gloucester. The work revealed late Iron Age field systems and enclosures and the stone foundations of a Romano-British villa, probably dating from the 2nd century AD. An associated waterhole, field systems and enclosures were also revealed.

A watching brief along the entire pipeline route was completed in December 2012. The team have valiantly worked through some atrocious weather conditions.
