MADDLE FARM

DESCRIPTION + /

Roman villa at Maddle Farm which, along with a nearby settlement site, was the focus of the Maddle Farm Project, which examined the sites and immediate environs via fieldwalking and test excavation during the 1980s. Sample excavation revealed a villa built of chalk blocks which was erected in the period c180-240 and received various alterations during the next century. Third century structures, including a succession of corn driers were built within a farmyard. Field walking has identified a pattern of pottery scatters resulting from the manuring of fields. Sample exacavation also revealed a series of Iron Age plough strips. The villa is situated at the eastern extents of a large field system (described in SU 28 SE 2). The field system has been ploughed levelled and it and the possible remains of some of the villa buildings are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs.
