Type and Period (4)
Archaeological excavation carried out in advance of building works revealed a continuation of early Roman droveway ditches from the adjacent site (ERL 089) and a number of filled pits appearing to date to the early Neolithic. One pit was found to contain a probable cremation burial with a radiocarbon date of 3810-3660 cal BC. It is assumed that the Neolithic features were all contemporary and may have had funerary associations (S1).
Radiocarbon date of a cremated bone (SUERC-7159 (GU-13113)): 3940-3660 CalBC (95.4% probability) (S2)(S3).
