Full Description

1996: Series of Neolithic, Prehistoric & Undated finds & features discovered in 8 trial trenches during evaluation. Finds include 8 Prehistoric worked flints, numerous burnt flints (Prehistoric?) and 121 sherds of Iron Age pottery and 1 fragment of "very pitted bronze, possibly a fragment of bronze `cake' or ingot" (from a feature with only Prehistoric finds including 20 Iron Age sherds).

Details in (S1) and (S2).

Also note subsequent excavations CAC 016 & CAC 042 within area.

Descriptions of finds are broad, dating to a specific period bracket is ill-advised. However, they may be later Prehistoric, based on find context, (S3).
