Full Description

The evaluation revealed a concentration of archaeological features belonging to a variety of periods. These were mainly encountered along the western side of the site, although two ditches (one undated, the other medieval) were revealed in the two trenches excavated in the east. A substantial pit of Late Bronze Age / Early Iron Age date was revealed towards the north-west corner of the site. A large ditch of possible defensive nature was encountered running east to west along the southern edge of the proposed development area. This ditch was of likely Late Saxon date and pits and post-holes of this period were also encountered. Medieval pits and ditches were also revealed, as were a small number of undated features. Good archaeological preservation was demonstrated with little evidence of truncation due to ploughing or other more recent disturbance. A full soil profile could be seen in section with the majority of archaeological features surviving to between 400 and 500mm below the present ground surface (S1).
