A Roman site at Wharram le Street indicated on aerial photographs was uncovered by geophysical survey and limited excavation. The site consists of a rectangular enclosure surrounded by other enclosures; a stone building with evidence for mosaics was located in the rectangular enclosure and may be dated to the 3rd/4th century AD. Although it is usually interpreted as a villa, evidence is weak and it has also been suggested that this site may have been a shrine or temple rather than a villa.

The site, along with one nearby, is described in Rahtz P, Hayfield C & Bateman J, 1986 “Two Roman Villas at Wharram-le-Street” York, York University Archaeology Publications.
