Type and Period (6)
The earliest features identified during evaluation were a prehistoric pit, a gully and posthole containing LBA pottery. A further three pits and a ditch contained mid-late Iron Age pottery (S1).
Excavations revealed a multi-period site with four main phases of occupation dating to the Late Bronze Age, the Middle Iron Age, the Early Roman period and the 12th-14th century AD.
Evidence of a more substantial settlement during the Middle Iron Age comprised a large enclosure ditch within which were the remains of two roundhouses and a number of probable storage pits as well as clusters of postholes and small pits (S2).
