2012: The most significant archaeological remains identified were located in the north-east corner of the site, which were sealed by a deep subsoil accumulation (1.40m below modern ground level). These features were not identified by the geophysical survey due to the considerable depth of the overlying deposits. A large ditch was a substantial boundary feature containing a structural beam slot or palisade trench. Two pits, one containing burnt flint were located to the north of this ditch. These features represent likely evidence for Middle Bronze Age settlement of some status which seems to have been located within and beyond the northern limits of the current area of investigation. A Mid Roman field system or enclosure was indicated by two ditches revealed within Trenches 2 and 9. A very small assemblage of pottery was recovered (two sherds, 22g), yet the perpendicular alignment of the ditches indicates the presence of a Mid Roman agricultural landscape.
