Full Description

The recorded archaeology included a small ring-ditch, 8 metres in diameter with an enclosed feature which, although not exhibiting any evidence for a body, was thought to represent an inhumation burial. In addition, a single un-urned cremation was identified lying external to but immediately to the south-west of the ring-ditch. While there was no direct dating evidence for these features it is thought likely that they are of Early Bronze Age in date and form part of the dispersed group which includes the majority of the other examples excavated within the quarry (S1).
