EXCAVATION REPORT CULVERMEAD 2006 by Rob Wallace

Culvermead is located on Culver Farm Barcombe, East Sussex TQ 425147 (OS Map 198 1:50 000). This evaluation forms part of a larger project. In 1999, a field walking and a geophysical survey were undertaken in Dunstalls field by the Mid Sussex Field Archaeology Team (hereafter MSFAT) under the directorship of Chris Butler, and with the kind permission of Harold Stroude the land owner. They were led to this site by the vast amount of Roman artefacts coming to the surface especially after ploughing. The results of the field walking survey strongly suggested that there was a possible Roman villa on the site, and the subsequent geophysical survey confirmed the likely presence of a winged corridor villa.
