Geophysics, fieldwalking, trial-trenching, and finds from Phase I in 2015 have all suggested significant Roman activity, and the discoveries to-date have indicated that this was a high-status site, with a bathhouse and numerous finds demonstrating the wealth of the owners. In 2019, it is expected that excavations of the final phase of the villa’s footprint will be completed. The site offers opportunities for planning, surveying, and finds-processing.
