Summary : Site of a Roman villa of probable winged, corridor type partly excavated in 1973 when geometric mosaics were found
More information : Wolverton SP 826404. Site of Roman building, tile,
tesserae, and sherds in scatter of building stone. (1)

A probable winged corridor villa featuring geometric mosaics,
was excavated in 1973. The uppermost levels only were examined and
these proved to be of fourth century date. (2)

The small area of villa so far excavated is centred at SP

Further exploration has located three rooms, all with mosaic
pavements, in a building perhaps 100m in length. (4)
