Students from Bournemouth University have been involved in a dig in the Dorset countryside near the village of Winterborne Kingston, which has so far uncovered a Roman villa, the skeletons of the people who lived there and hundreds of artefacts.

This weekend members of the public can go and visit the previously secret site to see for themselves what's been going on there.
