Preparation for the mosaic excavation starts…

Preparation for uncovering the mosaics is in full swing with a scaffolding platform being installed yesterday to give access to the triclinium while the mosaics are being uncovered.

A team of archaeologist and student volunteers will be re-excavating the West Range Corridor, Room 5b and Room 6 Corridor mosaics starting next Monday.  They will be removing the material protecting the mosaics and then a team of conservators will work on making them ready for permanent display in the new cover building.  While building the new cover shelter, the mosaics will be temporarily protected by a method to be agreed with English Heritage.

Come and see the archaeologists at work and ask them lots of questions!  There will be lots of hand-on activities too.  To find out what is going on and when, please visit the following link: http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-chedworthromanvilla
