Probable Roman villa near Welby Lodge Farm, Welby



Reference Name MLI97513

Name:
Probable Roman villa near Welby Lodge Farm, Welby

Summary:
Probable Roman villa near Welby Lodge Farm, Welby

Location:
WELBY, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 38950
A previously unknown stone-walled Roman building, probably an Antonine villa, was discovered during a watching brief and subsequent excavation along a water pipeline route. The pottery from the site is mostly from the mid-late 2nd century and includes a high proportion of high status, non-local wares and indicates a Roman lifestyle. Fragments of wall plaster were found, indicating decorated rooms, and box flue tiles which probably formed part of a hypocaust were also recovered. A hearth was found in one room which may have been part of a drier or similar feature. Other finds from the site include a coin of Antoninus Pius, a copper ear scoop, fragments of vessel glass, a bone pin, a loom weight, roof tiles and a possible lamp fragment. The site was not completely excavated and it is likely that more remains are present beyond the small excavation area. {1}{2}
