Full Description

2013: The initial geophysical survey identified a negative linear anomaly, possibly representing a bank or earthwork relating to an earlier field boundary, and a small poistive curvi-linear anomaly and a number of small, roughly circular positive anomalies which may represent cut features (S1).

2014: The first phase of archaeological evaluation trenching revealed a post medieval boundary ditch and two undated ditches. A single sherd of Roman pottery, one flint and animal bone were recovered from the features (S2).

2015: The second phase of archaeological evaluation trenching revealed a series of Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age pits and two Iron Age ditches. Prehistoric finds were also recovered from a series of natural hollows across the site. Worked flint including a Mesolithic bladelet and a late Neolithic sub-circular invasively retouched knife. Prehistoric pottery dating from the Late Neolithic to the Middle Iron Age was also recovered, including sherds of Grooved Ware, Beaker and Collared Urn (S3).

2016: A further phase of evaluation trenching on the site are ongoing.
