Gladiator glass find in Northampton

Recommended Posts

Archaeologists found the ancient fragment of glass on the site of a villa nearNether Heyford last week and it was displayed to the public for the first time at the weekend.

 

"Carved Roman glass like this is not a common find. It would have been very expensive and it's a very special piece. It gives us a clear idea of the status the villa had."

The carved glass was found in the bath house of the Roman Villa, which was discovered in a field near Nether Heyford four years ago.

Other finds at the site have included more than 300 Roman coins, pottery, jewellery and animal bones.

What kind of people you think lived there?

Ex-soliders, governers, vacation spot for the rich (england:?)?
