MONUMENT NO. 350328

DESCRIPTION + /

Excavation uncovered the site of a Roman courtyard villa dating from 2nd to 4th centuries AD. It appears that the villa began life modestly as a cottage, perhaps early in the 2nd century. Structural alterations were made and wings added in the 3rd and 4th centuries when the villa attained its maximum extent. At the height of its prosperity the villa appears to have been a large and palatial establishment with decorated walls and mosaics.
