Abstract:
Investigations were carried out to assess the present state of the remains of a Roman villa, the site of which had been identified from aerial photographs. Work involved magnetometer and resistivity surveys, field-walking, metal-detecting and selective excavation. The resistivity survey suggested the possibility that a rectangular building adjoined the villa on its north-east side, and that a circular feature c. 40m in diameter lay immediately to the north. The latter may have been topographical in origin. The magnetometer survey highlighted three large anomalies, two of which were related to the two known buildings. A third anomaly lay between the buildings. Smaller anomalies may have related to pits and archaeological debris. Almost half a ton of Romano-British tile was collected during the fieldwalking survey, along with tesserae, pottery and burnt flint. The excavation trenches, some of which were located to investigate geophysical anomalies, revealed an area of laid flint cobbles outside the villa, sections of the mortar and flint footings of the south-east and north-west walls of the villa, and areas interpreted as villa floor foundations. Much fallen roof tile and flint debris was observed outsie the north-west wall. Investigation of the second building identified it as a bath house. Coins, pottery and other small finds from the site indicated that the period of villa occupation had spanned the 2nd, 3rd and 4th centuries AD. It was concluded that no indication of the presence of buildings other than the villa and bath house had been found. The site was subject to annual ploughing; evidence that damage to the remains was an ongoing process was observed. It was recommended that the area between the villa and the bath house should be examined further. [AIP]
