Roman Villa (Newport)

REF NR: 413

Newport Roman Villa was built in 280 AD. It is home to one of the best preserved Roman bath suites with hypocaust underfloor heating. It was discovered in 1926 when an owner of a nearby house began to lay foundations for his garage. Subsequent excavations have revealed the substantial remains of a late Romano-British farmhouse.
