The Danebury Environs Project II is investigating ‘Rural Roman settlement in the West Hampshire downland’ and started with the excavation of the Roman villa at Houghton Down in 1997. This has been followed by excavations on villas at Grateley, Fullerton, Thruxton and Abbotts Ann, all villa sites with Iron Age antecedents. This year we will continue work at the villa complex at Dunkirt Barn, near Abbotts Ann, to the west of Andover and will focus on the excavation of a large Aisled Hall.
