Type and Period (7)
1999: Evaluation trenches exposed a number of scattered prehistoric ditches and a pit, which contained Iron Age and Neoltihic pottery, spread around the centre of the site, as well as a relatively concentrated area of Roman period features towards the north-east corner of the site (S2) - see BLG 017 MSF18641 for Roman features.
1999: Subsequent Monitoring of soil stripping in the area of the scattered prehistoric features revealed a number of possible post-holes and pits, only 6 of which contained datable evidence. A field boundary was also observed containing post-medieval material. It is possible that ploughing has led to the truncation or loss of features in this area (S3).
See BLG 017 MSF18641 for record of Excavation of Roman features in the north-east corner of the site.
