Full Description

2000: Evaluation revealed a number of discrete archaeological features, generally in the central sector of the site. The remains comprised undated postholes, undated gullies and ditches, three Roman pits and a continuation of the large ? Mid Iron Age enclosure ditch, which has been identified during excavations in 1999. The present evaluation recovered LBA/Iron Age - 2nd century pottery from the ditch fill (S1).

Roman features of 2nd-3rd C date included regular field ditches, pits, post holes and a four post structure, also a post and beamslot structure, that may relate to the nearby farmstead / villa (S2).
