A Miniature Cist from the Roman Villa at Warblington, Hampshire

  • James Kenny (a1) and Trevor Davies (a2)

Abstract

Excavations by Chichester and District Archaeology Society on the site of a Roman villa at Warblington, near Emsworth, Hampshire, revealed a small stone cist containing two lead packages. While interpretation as a burial is explored, it appears more likely that the cist and its contents represent a ritual deposit within a domestic structure.
