We've a couple of those "villa rustica" (correct plural: villae rusticae
) here in Germany. (One, the Villa Borg
, had been discovered 100 years ago, untouched for 1600 years as well)
The remains of a Roman villa urbana
can be found east of the Maltese Castle in This country residence of a large landowner in Mediterranean style covered 5.5 hectares and was built around 30 AD, remaining intact until around 275 AD.
In Xanten ( Colonia Ulpia Traiana
, now one of the largest archaeological open air museums in the world) we've just one "better villa rustica" but dozens of "strip-houses" (kind of Roman terraced houses in the Gallo-Germanic provinces).
