A New Roman Road for Hampshire – Winchester to London

A few years back, a new Roman road was discovered by the North East Hampshire Historical and Archaeological Society (NEHHAS) Field Archaeology Branch. In brief, it found that the A31 which runs from Winchester to Farnham follows (in part) a Roman road. This was suspected but had never been proved. Now it appears, evidence has been amassed, and this road can be added to the canon of Hampshire Roman roads.It is also shown how this road then connects to London. There are several clues along the way, which have been comprehensively followed up, and it is all described in the NEHHAS Journal No 3: “Collected Reports on the Roman Road Winchester – London” published by by NEHHAS and available here.
