Archaeologists excavating the listed Syon Park site made the discovery of more than 11,000 Roman items just half a metre below the ground.
They were digging on the land ahead of the construction of a new hotel on the outskirts of the historical Syon Park Estate, near Brentford.
Part of one of Roman Britain’s most important roads was also found.
Jo Lyon, a senior archaeologist at the museum, said: “We were extremely fortunate to discover such a comprehensive repertoire of Roman finds and features so close to the surface.
“They tell us a great deal about how the people of this village lived, worked and died.
