The Roman Villa from Wroxeter, Shropshire that was featured in the 6 week TV series “Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day”.
It is on the site of an existing Roman ruined town.
6 men from the building trade came together to build this villa for English Heritage in 6 months.
They had to build it using only tools and materials that were used in the day.
The builders had no previous knowledge of Roman history.
I was invited to Opening Day by English Heritage and I met Tim the Plasterer, who single-handedly plastered the whole building !!
They all lost so much weight during the project and Tim is here jokingly displaying his Workout DVD !!
