Chedworth Villa

This links to an interesting new discovery in the area of Britain where the story of “Memories” takes place.  This article in The Independent discusses the “Dark Ages” history of this area, and emphasizes that Roman-style government continued in west Britain after 410, which is traditionally taken as the end date for Roman rule.

Chedworth Villa, discussed in this article, is located very close to Cirencester (Corinium), the local administrative capital where much of the story in “Memories” takes place.   However, I used the plan of the Chedworth Villa as the model for the villa of Agridurnum, the home of the Astrabani family.

Thanks to my mother for sending me the newspaper cutting
