Full Description

An archaeological excavation was carried out on land at Churchfield Road, Chilton, in advance of light industrial development. The site, which lay adjacent to the medieval Church of St Mary's and a former medieval green, identified evidence of settlement in the 11th - 14th centuries. Despite the limited size of the site and probable heavy truncation a scatter of features indicated that the area had been sub-divided into smaller plots or yards and may have contained one or two post and beam structures together with associated rubbish pits. The finds assemblage clearly demonstrated the presence of settlement during the early medieval and medieval periods. No evidence was seen of any activity contemporary with the Late Bronze or Early Iron Age enclosure, CHT 009/015, which lies immediately to the west (S1).
