Notes

Roman mausoleum of the cart-wheel type, rare in Britannia but with continental analogies. The monument has been partly levelled by past ploughing and survives as a low, circular mound circa 19 metres in diameter and 0.2 metres high. Excavations in 1815 and 1817 revealed the mausoleum to have been constructed over a circular chamber, surviving in the form of buried, mortared-brick footings. Blocks of squared tufa originating from Italy were also used in the construction.
