Full Description

1997 & 1998: Archaeological evaluation and excavation revealed extensive Roman settlement remains. Two small areas were investigated, within these a series of boundary ditches, representing early field systems, were excavated and recorded. These features could be dated to 2 distinct phases, an early phase, dated approximately to the 1st century AD. The site appears to have been abandoned between the 2 phases, as indicated by the absence of Late 1st and early 2nd century finds. No evidence for any structures located within the excavated areas was identified although a small amount of Roman building material was recovered from a late Phase 2 ditch. Details in (S1)(S2).
Also LIA.
Also Undated cropmarks, IA, Rom, Sax & Med finds in adjoining field - see EXG 033.
