Full Description

Archaeological evaluation identified features and finds dating from the Neolithic to the post medieval period. Pre-medieval remains were restricted to residual artefacts in later features and subsoil deposits. These nevertheless attest to a presence un the landscape as early as the Neolithic period. Medieval features, comprising several ditches, and a quantity of pits/postholes were located in the central and eastern parts of the site. A midden layer was also identified. Post-medieval ditches, including one identified as a field boundary shown on 19th-century maps, probably denote the presence of multiphase agricultural enclosure systems extending across the site (S1).
