Abstract: Dr. E.K. Tratman (1960) described his rediscovery of teh Lye Hole Roman villa (discovered in 1876 and subsequently forgotten) but failed to re-locate the Havyatt Roman villa, originally discovered in 1817. Fresh documentary evidence has led to a re-examination of the original references to the Havyatt site and its location in August 1969 at ST 48016145, on the slope of a low hill south of the R. Yeo near Havyatt Farm. The confusion that has arisen between this and a second Roman site about a mile away in Lower Langford is resolved.
