Could this have been made by Nero 👍. Super clear thumb print on the edge of another armchair voussoir. More amazing finds from the Neronian tile works at Little London. #nero #cbm #roman #archaeology #thumb

Our summer bath house excavations will feature in the forthcoming new series of Digging for Britain. Clear your diaries on the 5th December. Here's a sneak peak (which we don't feature in unfortunately) #Silchester #RomanBritain #BBC #Archaeology #Dig

The Roman town of Silchester is one of my favourite ancient places - on a sunny summer day, its overgrown corners and wide open spaces are wonderfully atmospheric. Strange to think that this quiet corner of Hampshire was once a bustling metropolis @silchexcavation
