Full Description

Fieldwalking, aerial photographic survey and localised excavation in advance of work along a new water main pipeline between 15th January and 11th May 2007. Fieldwalking identified a concentration of Roman finds to the north of Chilton Hall, which was investigated within a 10m wide strip along the route of the pipeline and identified a pit and a ditch that appear to date to the earlier Roman period. The finds indicate the nearby presence of a Roman structure, dating to the 2nd to 4th centuries AD, with an earlier phase of activity represtned by features from the excavation (S1).
