Excavation of Roman Settlement 400m S of Priory Fm
A Roman rubbish pit and evidence of fourth century Roman buildings was found during an excavation, suggesting that this is the site of a Roman settlement. The site lies close to the Fosse Way Roman road, 500m southwest of the Mission Church at Princethorpe.
1 A Trajanic rubbish pit cut into the early course of the Fosse Way.
2 A second trench through the Fosse Way indicated that it was badly damaged by later Roman buildings – probably C4.
