MONUMENT NO. 199898

DESCRIPTION + /

Excavations on Lamyatt Beacon recorded the site of a Romano-Celtic temple and a Saxon cemetery. The Roman temple was square in plan, with a central cella and extra rooms on the east side. A small sunken room was found to be south of the temple and a small rectangular building to the north. The temple was in use from circa 250 AD to 375 AD. The inhumation cemetery comprised sixteen inhumations. All the burials were extended and orientated west-east or southwest-northeast. Radio carbon dating of two of the burials give a sixth-eighth century date for the cemetery.
