Metal detected finds include coin of Domitian and two C3 and a fragment of fantail brooch (S2). Occasional finds also in field to E (IXW 018).
February 2001: Evaluation trenching prior to proposed development revealed three Early AS graves (part of larger cemetery), and Rom and Med finds - details in (S3).
