I visited the Roman Villa at Chedworth and Cirencester Museum on Thursday and saw some fantastic mosaics. If I could have floors like this I would rip my carpets up tomorrow!
I found the ones at Chedworth really inspiring because they are still positioned in exactly the place they were originally laid down. I found myself wondering how many sandal-clad feet had trodden those mosaics, imagined the chatter in the bath house, it’s so much more real when these things are left in their original places.
I bought a couple of lovely postcards of some of the mosaics, but I can’t put them up here because of copyright restrictions. I’m hoping that a photograph I took will turn out OK so that I can put one up here later.
