Harpham Villa 2023 Season Review
16th February, 5 to 7pm
A talk about the 2023 excavation at the Harpham period villa with conclusions as to what it tells us further about the development of the site.
The Harpham Villa Landscape Project’s 2023 season successfully re-excavated parts of the Roman-period villa enclosure. Two trenches positioned across features in the centre of the site unpicked the intensity of occupation and the structural history of the main villa building. Surprisingly, yet another building was identified in the central trench. This talk will discuss the results of the field season, key finds (some of which will be available for handling), and how Harpham can be viewed in its regional and international context. What will be shown is how the 2023 excavation answers key questions that arose from earlier work at Harpham and the manner in which this landscape evolved during the Roman period.
