  3. This video was compiled in 2009 from videos shot in 2001, 2003, and 2005, with new material shot in 2009. It tells the story of the excavation of a unique villa settlement on a hillside in Northamptonshire with it's two bath houses, iron age roundhouses, and post-roman timber building.

    The dig featured on Time Team's Big Roman Dig in 2005.

    The excavation ended in 2012, when the site was reinstated.

  4. They turned out not to be roof timbers! But they are an unusual survival of large shaped Roman timbers, recycled at least once and used here to stabilise a slope during the building of the first bath house at Whitehall.

  5. "Reinstating" is the technical term for "re-burying"! After over 10 years of excavation, the last open area of Whitehall Roman Villa was protected and re-buried in 2012, to return the field to pasture. See here how it was done.
