Abstract:
The long-held theory that the chalk downs of Wessex were put down to large-scale pastoral farming in 4th cent AD requires re-examination. The known RB settlements there were abandoned at widely differing dates throughout the 4th cent. Of the pastoral enclosures, only three can be dated to 4th cent, and one of these shows evidence of mixed farming. Many other enclosures can be shown to be non-Roman, or only dubious Roman. The "ranch boundaries" could lie anywhere between 1200 BC and AD 400 in date. The evidence suggests that mixed farming continued to the end of 4th cent with no great change from late-prehistoric practice.
