Full Description

Watching Brief carried out during the excavation of footing trenches. Finds (0002) were recovered from the machine spoil. Neither sherd was from the top, darkest soil.
The natural chalk was at 1.5m. There was what looks to be a pit dropping to 2.1m at the eastern end of the site. See attached plan - only a small amount of soil was seen - suggest there were many more finds not recovered (S1).
