I was fortunate to be able to enjoy some of the celebrations to recognise the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Bignor Roman Villa last year. They were stumbled upon by the great great great grandfather of the current owner of the land whilst plowing. I took the opportunity to take one or two photographs of the remarkable mosaic floors. Ironically the buildings errected over the remains nearly 200 years ago are considered, by English Heritage, to be more important than the Roman remains. These Georgian buildings have had the thatch redone about eight times since they were built and much of the lower layers, visible from inside the buildings, is thought to be the original. The villa dates back to the 3rd Century AD and is open to the public from the beginning of March to the end of October and is well worth the visit.
Many thanks for all the kind c+c on my last upload. It is much appreciated.
All the best,
