Blacklands - There's no place like Rome

The Team this week join Bath and Camerton Archaeological Society who have been carrying out excavations at a site called ‘Blacklands’ in Somerset since 1999
The site is close to the major religious centre at Bath and has produced significant results that indicate a very early Roman presence..

Seven trenches were opened and excavated so more could be understood about the relationship between the Iron Age and Roman settlements at the site.

Bridget Hetzel, a member of the archaeological society, said:
"Everyone worked incredibly hard during the week, with excavations starting at 9am and continuing into the evenings. But it was great fun and well worth it. The finds were hugely important, and their significance is revealed during the programme."
