Tunbridge Hall Farm, Bottisham. An Archaeological Evaluation
The Bottisham site lies to the northeast of and adjacent to previous archaeological excavations from which Roman remains, dating from the 2nd to 4th centuries AD, were recovered. The investigation revealed a potentially high status Roman settlement with the presence of stone footed buildings and painted wall plaster. The remains appear to belong to the later Roman period (c. 200-450 AD), although sequential superimposed fields or paddocks indicate the possibility of the settlement spanning the broader Roman period. While no doubt predominantly agricultural in nature, industrial activity was suggested by quantities of slag.
