The villa once stood in the centre of a large farming estate, and is the largest known Roman villa in the area. It's history spans the period from the Iron Age through to the 5th century AD.
Today you can walk around the remains of the villa and visit the site museum which displays many of the fascinating objects found on the site and shows what life was like for the Roman Britons who lived here over 1600 years ago.
The villa site includes bath houses, living quarters, farm buildings and workshops.
Visitors can see the best mosaics, part of the underfloor heating system and the outline of the Villa's forty rooms.
