Abstract

This study examines the transformation of the Roman villa in the Latin West between the 3rd and 6th centuries AD. Using a new methodological approach, it classifies and categorizes villa transformation into 4 new groups (habitational, productive, funerary, cultic, fortification) whilst addressing issues of abandonment. The study applied this method to three large case studies in the Latin West: Britannia, Germania Secunda and the Belgic Hinterland and South Gaul and Northeast Tarraconensis. Using a range of statistical and GIS tools it demonstrated the highly variable regionality in the development of the Roman villa in Late Antiquity.
