2018 will be the fifth season of excavations at Plumpton Roman villa. This year we will be concentrating on two areas. The first, just to the west of the main winged-corridor house, is thought to be the location of a bath house. The other is on the opposite side of the house
– an extensive, roughly rectangular spread of flints. Trial trenching in this area in 2017 yielded our first early (1st century AD) Romano-British pottery from the site, and also our first carbonised grain remains. Other work will continue on parts of the western
end of the house and areas surrounding this.
