MONUMENT NO. 208491

DESCRIPTION + /

A Roman villa discovered in 1838 after ploughing in a field called "The Allotment". A mosaic floor, apparently inscribed SERVIVS or SEVERVS was uncovered at the time, but subsequently reburied. Excavation in 1854 uncovered 12 rooms, tesselated floors, painted floors and painted wall plaster. The mosaic floor had apparently "disintegrated". Coins were also found. Subsequent ploughing turned up more masonry. There are also brief references to the discovery in 1940 of two small Romano-British coffins with human remains on or near the site during the construction of the concrete runway of the airfield which now overlies the site.
