The early phase of development of Barcombe Romano-British 'villa' site in c40 to c50 AD when it still contained iron age round houses with a ditch around. The proximity to the Bronze Age barrow, in the foreground, remained a feature through all its phases.

The second phase of Barcombe Romano-British villa near Lewes, in transition with the introduction of a rectangular building in the Roman style. As it might have looked in 150AD, post the Claudian conquest, of 43AD.

The third phase of Barcombe Romano-British villa near Lewes, as it might have looked in 250AD, when it had become fully Romanised with two stories, a barn and a bath house nearby. All 3 phases of the villa site are drawn from archaeological evidence, and personal digging experience. It is possible that it can now be interpreted as a mansio for boarding travellers and workers, as it was subsequently thought that the bath house was too large for a single villa dwelling. Since excavation, a large Roman settlement has been discovered to the east, across the the River Ouse, (see Bridge Farm excavations by the Culver Project), which promises to be a major trading hub for the area, through much of the Roman occupation, as it stands on the junction of two Roman roads, the E-W Greensand Way and the N-S London-Lewes road, as identified by Margary.

The above images were prepared for enlargement onto 2M high panels for a prehistoric display at Newhaven Fort, Sussex. They include, Homo Heidelbergensis figure and a scene with a group butchering a deer after a hunt, Bronze Age casting of socketed axes under Mt Caburn which can be seen in the distance, Iron Age ritual burial on top of Mt Caburn, Sussex, a standing figure of an Iron Age warrior and a scene of Mesolithic hunter gatherers near an estuary on the the Sussex coast.
