Various Roman finds from Beckley were documented by Percy Manning, particularly building remains and tessellated pavements from a Roman villa site. He also notes a possible Roman road.
A Roman brooch from Beckley, and pin, found near the Roman road, are now in the Ashmolean Museum (AN1886.1140-41). In fact, in 1892 some labourers digging close to Wick Farm found a Romano-British burial containing a skeleton of an adult female.
Manning also notes a spindle whorl with red enamel was found in the allotments at Beckley in 1894.
