Full Description

Evaluation works revealed a single Late Iron Age/Romano British ditch that contained a large assemblage of pottery, a medieval ditch, and a post medieval ditch. Modern pits are likely to relate to when the site formed part of the WW2 airfield of Eye. Undated ditches may relate to an earlier fieldsystem of Late Iron Age/Romano British date or they may represent the remains of a field system of medieval or post-medieval date (S1).
