in General ( Villa Romana)
We are almost about to finish the excavation of the area planned for this phase and at this point the results we obtained suggest that the pars urbana rooms correspond to the domestic area, to include; a dining room (triclinium), kitchen area, and storage (even so the investigation is still ongoing, so we are not 100% sure). We also are able to re-confirm the presence of Visigothic and Medieval funerary structures on top of the Late Roman ones.
The only work left to do to finish this campaign is cleaning the floor of room 9 (East - West axis), it is a polychrome mosaic basically made by two geometric figures: squares and diamonds. These figures, jointly, developed a scheme in which alternate lines of diamonds and lines of squares, framed by a skirting board with shield motifs.
