Full Description

Archaeological evaluation identified two pits and a ditch, all originating from the medieval period, as well as a possible pit dated to the modern period. A large amount of domestic refuse recovered from the medieval features indicate that this area formed a site of occupation from around the 12th to the 15th century. The residual presence of prehistoric flints and Roamn material also suggests habitation in the vicinity of the site during these earlier periods (S1).
