Tucked away on a back road between Fordingbridge and Salisbury, This site is easily overlooked, and not particularly publicized. Don't let that put you off if you're interested in Roman Britain, Rockbourne is a glimpse into the lives of relatively ordinary people.
The site is a farming villa and the museum catalogues it's development over the 300+ years of its' habitation. Centre stage are some wonderful mosaics, opened hypocaust and the remains of a bath house. The visitors centre looks in detail at the workings of a hypocaust system at at other aspects of daily life including diet.
All in all, the it's worth the modest entry fee just to see the mosaics, the rest is a bonus!
