Roman finds, Field C6 (Warwick Uni Eval)

Description of this historic site

Findspot - mosaic fragments of Roman date were found to the north of Cryfield Village, suggesting that this might be the site of an important Roman building.

Notes about this historic site

1 An assessment of the archaeological potential of Warwick University’s lands (MWA 8344) included the results of a number of fieldwalking sessions, mostly unstructured. In Field C6, Roman pottery together with mosaic floor fragments and loose tesserae were noted. This suggests a substantial Roman building in the vicinity, perhaps a villa or a religious structure. The mound at the northern end of the field (see MWA 8347) may have been enhanced in the Roman period.
2 Further tesserae were ploughed up from this field in Autumn 2013. These are mainly small individual pieces but they are some larger pieces of a tesserated pavement.
