The Roman Villa at Liss, Hampshire, Excavations 1992–2010
By The Liss Archaeology Group
Following re-alignment of the A3 Trunk road, Roman pottery and tile were found in a field at Liss. A field-walk survey confirmed Roman activity and excavations between 2001 and 2010 revealed a late 3rd–4thcentury AD Roman villa. The villa appears to have grown in three main phases from a single aisled building to at least two groups of buildings, with attached bathhouses, around a central courtyard. There was also limited evidence for earlier Roman and Iron Age occupation, but no contemporary features apart from a few post holes. The excavation was organised by the local archaeological group, with funding primarily from the Heritage Lottery Fund. It involved significant community participation, as well as professional direction of the archaeological project.
