Withington; A Surviving Roman Estate – Evening Lecture with Roger Box

Romano-British villas were extensive rural complexes of domestic, agricultural and occasionally industrial buildings that were constructed throughout the Roman period, from the first to the fourth centuries AD. The remains of Withington Roman villa were first discovered in 1811 and Samuel Lysons was invited to carry out investigations; the remains of walls, pavements and third- to fourth-century AD mosaics were uncovered; enough to identity that the plan of the building was a tripartite corridor villa and bath-house.
Join Roger Box to uncover the magnificent villa and surrounding areas that neighboured Chedworth but are no longer visible.
