Type and Period (2)
The monitoring in advance of the construction of the kennels revealed the presence of a buried soil layer containing Roman occupation material and eight features, ditches and pits, all but one of which lay at the eastern end of the site. The finds recovered were dated to the 1st-3rd centuries AD. The features lay on the line of the western edge of the early Roman fort and may represent a group of small re-cut ditches forming a boundary extending from the NW corner of the fort enclosure, which continued in use as part of the Roman town after the fort went out of use in the 1st century AD (S1).
