Full Description

2014: Evaluation revealed a single undated ditch and a natural hollow. A single sherd of pottery, probably of Iron Age date, was found in the natural hollow and a single sherd of 12th to 14th century pottery was recovered from the topsoil of the ploughed filed. In addition, several stuck flints were also recovered and demonstrates a background level of prehistoric activity at the site (S1).

Descriptions of flint finds are broad, dating to a specific period bracket is ill-advised. However, they may be later Prehistoric, based on details of discovery, (S2).
