Roman Cellar3D Model
A Roman cellar, found in 2023 during the Leicester Cathedral Revealed project. The sunken room, found 3m below modern ground level, had painted stone walls and a concrete floor. The decorative paintwork suggests that the space, measuring about four by four metres, would have been used as a reception room rather than as a place of storage. It was probably built in the 2nd century AD and was deliberately dismantled and infilled in the late 3rd or 4th century. Amidst the rubble infilling the cellar was the base of an altar stone, and it is possible that the room was used as a shrine or cult room within a larger Roman building.
