Roman mosaic corridor to go on display in Gloucestershire

Victorian excavations at the site of the Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucestershire, England led to some surprises, including a 35m (115ft) long Roman mosaic floor, "one of the longest in-situ corridor mosaics in the country." Soon the mosaic will be displayed for the public. (photo)

The National Trust will clean and stabilize the mosaic floor before adding a special walkway, which will allow visitors to walk the corridor, just above the Roman tiles. The exhibit will open March 4, 2012.
