Roman Mosaic Floor Fragment



Roman Mosaic Floor Fragment

This mosaic fragment was unearthed during the discovery of the remains of a Roman building on Borough Hill in 1823 by archaeologist George Baker, however the site was not fully excavated until 1852 by Beriah Botfield. Whether the building was a Roman villa or temple is still a matter of debate.
