Archaeologists excavating a Roman villa have found it had underfloor heating in an unexpected part of the building.

The site at Lufton near Yeovil was first excavated in the 1950s and 60s by local archaeologist Leonard Hayward.

Project leader Dr James Gerrard, said: "If you were living here in the 4th Century having underfloor heating is at the top of your priorities."

The dig also aimed to precisely locate the Roman villa using GPS and surveying techniques which it has now achieved.
