The Meonstoke Window
Meonstoke, Hampshire

Roman Wall from Meonstoke This is part of the end wall of an extension to an early fourth century stone-built aisled-building (something like a tythe-barn), excavated at Meonstoke in Hampshire. It had collapsed outwards and was lying flat on the ground, thus giving archaeologists the rare opportunity to examine the upper reaches of a vertical wall from antiquity. The decorative use of brick and tile is clearly visible, a trend encountered in late Roman buildings on the Continent. The upper windows were blocked in the mid-4th century.
