Full Description

Monitoring identified ten pits, one posthole, one possible posthole and five layers. Pottery recovered from the features was dated to the 1st to 2nd centuries and additional finds including animal bone and marine shellfish suggest the pits were located near an area of occupation. One of the identified layers contained late Iron Age/early Romano-British transitional period pottery and may indicate the height of the ground level in the later prehistoric period (S1).
