Underneath the houses and shops of Cirencester, the town of Corinium lies hidden, its secrets being unveiled through artefacts and excavations.

In the year of 1849 the foundations of a house along with two exceptional pavements were discovered under Dyer Street, close to where the Bear Inn stands today. The first one found is now known as the hunting dogs mosaic. In the centre, three dogs converge on their prey. Although about three-quarters of this mosaic survives, it is clear that a large area of it was damaged and repaired in Roman times, following the same design but replacing figured work (depictions of Neptune, medusa and sea beasts) with largely geometric patterns.
