Overview
-

This fascinating full-color book tells the complete story behind the most spectacular and innovative Roman mosaic ever found in Britain. The Boxford Mosaic, dating from around 350AD, is one of just three mosaics of its kind in the world - a masterpiece of Roman artistry and a beautifully preserved link to the past. Yet it lay hidden beneath a field in Boxford, England, for some 1,600 years until is was fully uncovered in the summer of 2019. The book reveals the inside story of its rediscovery, excavation and the myths depicted on it.
