Lullingstone Roman Villa was the subject of a prolonged period of excavation between 1949 and 1961, directed by G W Meates, E Greenfield and E Birchenough. The site is considered to be one of the best surviving examples of its type in the country, and is particularly significant due to the evidence uncovered of Romano-British Christianity.

The collection comprises a typescript for "The Roman Villa at Lullingstone, Kent. Vol.I, The Site" by Lieutenant Colonel G W Meates, which was published by Kent Archaeological Society in 1979. There are also 121 photographic negatives with corresponding file prints and 13 original prints recording the excavations, taken by Meates. The images include details of finds, as well as 44 photographic copies of excavation drawings.
