Roman farming

By the time the Romans arrived in Britain in 43AD farming was well established in what later became the East Meon Hundred as evidenced by the extensive field systems that had been created during the Iron Age. There is archaeological evidence that the Iron Age farming units within East Meon developed into Romanised villas and farmsteads. Late Iron Age and Roman remains found at Old Down Farm, Peak Farm, Ridgehanger and the Roman villa in Stroud all provide us with valuable evidence that farming was practised in the area during the Iron Age and in Roman times.
