    The Roman villas at Newport and Brading have been excavated and are open to the public. When fully developed around AD, Brading was probably the largest villa on the Island, being a courtyard villa with impressive mosaics. Caesar reported that the Belgae took the Isle of Wight about 85 BC and named it Ictus (or Vectis).   The Roman villa at Brading was built on the site of an Iron Age farm, which was positioned to take full advantage of the harbour situated between Sandown and Bembridge. The Romans certainly chose a good spot for a tea room; the villa’s Forum Cafe is positioned on the west side of the building, perfect for enjoying the view across to Sandown.
