Notes about this historic site

1 A late Bronze Age or early Iron Age (c1400-600BC) linear boundary comprising a series of subcircular pits was found (in field 4 of the survey area) during evaluation. Parts of the boundary appear to have comprised lengths of ditch rather than pits. The linear boundary probably formed part of a wider, more complex network of boundaries, perhaps demarcating territories.
2 Date given as Late Bronze Age/Iron Age.
