Type and Period (4)
(TL 70504703) Roman foundations, a hypocaust, a mosaic pavement and plaster were found under the nave and the south aisle of St Peter and St Paul's Church, Kedington, in
1934. The tessellated pavement was not seen during field investigation but there are a large number of Roman bricks built into the walls of the church. There was probably originally a large building, possibly a villa, nearby.(S1)
The remains of a Roman building are under the pews of SS Peter and Paul Church, and a section of mosaic paving is to be noted in the south outer face of the nave.(S2)
Romano-British finds beneath the nave could no longer be taken to prove that the church was built on an R-B site, only that some R-B materials were reused, probably from the villa to the South, (TL74NW20).(S3)
Bricks and ? opus signum built into the walls, Roman - e.g. derived from KDG 007? See also Medieval and Saxon records.
