Google Map of Rockbourne Roman Villa

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Rockbourne Roman Villa and Museum is a Roman courtyard villa excavated and put on public display in the village of Rockbourne in the English county of Hampshire, England.

The villa was discovered in 1942 by the ferret of a local farmer and excavated by A. T. Morley Hewitt over the next thirty years.

The main structure was a large residence surrounding a courtyard, including luxurious Roman mosaics and bath suites. There were also farm buildings and workshops since it sat at the centre of large farming estate. Its origins lie in the Iron Age and it was occupied until the 5th century.

Much of the villa is on public display and there is a site museum, with excavated artefacts, tracing the villa's history.
