Question:
Where in Wiltshire was the Roman Cunetio?

Answer:
This was at Mildenhall, to the east of Marlborough, which was at the junction of three Roman roads from Bath, Winchester and Cirencester. From the air it can be seen that there was a villa here and a street system within a rectangular enclosure. After the Romans left this survived as a small market town during the Saxon period and then became the village of Mildenhall.
