Horkstow - Roman Mosaic

Sorry No Image

Roman Mosaic
A site of a Roman Villa was discovered in the grounds of Horkstow Hall in 1797 when a large mosaic pavement was found. The Pavement can now be seen at Hull’s Archaeological Museum.
In 1796 fragments of the tessellated pavement of a long narrow room, divided into three compartments, were found in a field near, one of these having a most singular representation of a Roman chariot race; other portions contained mutilated figures of the "Fates", attended by genii, Nerieids and tritons; Roman coins have also been found.
