Warblington Roman Villa Estate - an Update.
Two years on and the story is still evolving. Chichester and District Archaeology Society (CDAS) has been exploring this site for 9 years.
The Warblington Estate was occupied from well before the Roman invasion until the late Roman period – much longer than Fishbourne Roman Palace. Detailed geophysical surveys have revealed several significant buildings across the site. CDAS has excavated a number of these including a Bathhouse. More recently CDAS excavated another Roman Bathhouse in Priory Park, Chichester. Further surveys and excavations will be made later in 2017.
This exhibition displays the latest Warblington results and some fascinating finds. All give a picture of how the buildings were constructed and used, providing an insight into how our ancestors lived on this local site. Included in the display is a Mystery Object, ignored for most of the 2014 dig this object was excavated on the very last day.
