A discovery of numerous Roman Era artefacts was made, United Kingdom, where a new housing development is scheduled.
Archaeologists working at the site commissioned by the developer due to the archaeological significance of previous finds made in the area uncovered three high-status Roman buildings, which formed part of a rural villa complex dating from between around 200 to 400 AD. The scientists believe one of the buildings was a bath house as there is evidence of an underfloor heating system.
Numerous artefacts dating from the Roman period include a 4th century coin of Constantine II, ceramic building tiles, Roman stone work, and the spout on a pottery vessel imported from the continent. Other finds include a wide range of Neolithic and Early Bronze Age flints, indicating the area was occupied much earlier than Roman times. Another discovery provided evidence f medieval settlement activity, which suggests that the Medieval village of Bottisham may have once expanded along Tunbridge Lane.
