The different phases identified by the excavator may be summarised as follows:
Two late Gallic farms are represented by systems of ditched enclosures. A small curvilinear enclosure of about 1000 m² (phase 1) is inscribed within a sub-rectangular enclosure which may cover about 3800 m².
In the subsequent phase, the space is completely reorganised. A large “oval” enclosure 150 m long by 100 m wide contains a sub-rectangular enclosure of 5600 m² (phase 2). Two entrances in the shape of
allowed access to the property. These ditch layouts are very characteristic of the numerous “indigenous farms” seen from the air.
These farms can be compared to the farms of the Pays de Caux, in which the yard is surrounded by a quadrangular ditch surmounted on the inside by an embankment planted with trees.
The central enclosure of the preceding farm was enlarged to the east in the first half of the 1st century AD (phase 3). An entrance is marked on the north side by two diagonal ditches.
Gallo-Roman villas are characterised
by foundations of buildings, ditches delimiting the enclosures, cellars, silos, fences, pits and postholes. There are few traces of occupation before the middle of the 1st century AD. Buildings with stone foundations are difficult to date, but they would not be earlier than the middle of the 2nd century AD. Among the five structures that have been found, it is possible to identify the residential building, a small balneary, and a building with a cellar (phase 4)
At the transition of the 2nd to the 3rd centuries, a boundary wall is built, separating the first three buildings of the pars urbana from the rest of the pars rustica of the farm (phase 5).
In the first half of the 3rd century AD, the residential building is more strongly rebuilt, together with the boundary wall with its small entrance and the enclosure ditch.
The subsequent phases of occupation are more difficult to date owing to the leveling of the structures. The entire site is abandoned around 410 AD.
