In 1942 a farmer near the Hampshire village of Rockbourne was digging out a ferret when he came across oyster shells and a bit of tile. Luckily the farmer called in a local amateur antiquarian named AT Morley Hewitt, who dug an exploratory hole. To his enormous surprise, Morley Hewitt's hole exposed a Roman mosaic floor!

Silchester was settled as early as the late Iron Age when it was an important tribal centre for the native Atrebates. When the Romans settled in Britain, they reused the settlement site to create a new town called Calleva Attrebatum (loosely translated as Town in the woods of the Atrebattes).
