Roman mosaic revealed at Blake Museum

A FOURTH century Roman mosaic which sat in the storeroom ofBridgwater’s Blake Museum for 47 years has been restored and unveiled to the public.
Lady Gass, the Lord Lieutenant of Somerset, revealed the mosaic at the museum’s Archaeology Gallery last week for the first time since the Spaxton Roman Villa was discovered nearly 50 years ago.
Honorary Museum Curator, Dr Peter Cattermole, said: “Volunteers have been working towards this day for many months.
“It is wonderful that we can start a new museum season displaying a rare item that links us all with the people living and working around Bridgwater about 1,600 years ago.”
