Full Description

Monitoring of groundworks identified three incised features were recorded in the exposed sections of the footing trenches, each sealed by a layer of topsoil. A large E-W aligned ditch from which a small sherd of possible Iron Age pottery was recovered was cut by a medieval pit and a large undated pit. The latter pit may represent an extraction pit whilst the ditch could be associated with the Clare Camp earthwork immediately north and west of the site. Whilst the evidence is only slight, the pottery from the ditch raises the possibility that the Clare Camp earthwork could have Iron Age origins (S1).
