Church Farm Romano-British settlement


The monument consists of the remains of a Romano-British settlement, likely dating from the late Iron Age to the Romano-British periods. Through trial excavation and geophysical survey, the presence of an embanked and ditched rectilinear enclosure has been established, which is interpreted as the core of a local farmstead. The monument is located in improved pasture and includes infilled ditches that contain and enclose buried archaeological deposits. The enclosure measures approximately 95m from NNE to SSW, with a width of up to 65m, and is characterized by ditches of considerable breadth and depth that exhibit various chronological phases. The pottery evidence indicates the multi-period occupation of the site, with Iron Age pottery suggesting the construction of the ditches, and diverse Roman material indicating Romano-British occupation from the 2nd century AD to the later 4th century AD. While the occupation may not have been continuous, the presence of demonstrable multi-period occupation makes this site unique among rural Romano-British farmsteads in Wales.
