The Roman villa at Abbots Ann, near Andover, was discovered in the early 1850s CE. The portions of mosaic floors uncovered were in a bold and simple style, using large tesserae in a limited range of colours, but following Roman geometric designs. From Abbots, Ann, Hampshire, UK. 4th century CE. (The British Museum. London)
