Notes about this historic site

1 An small assemblage of Beaker pottery was found within a posthole.
2Beaker pottery and flintwork came from a pit in area G. This, together with other Beaker material from a posthole in trench 3, suggests some settlement .
3 The earliest features revealed by the excavations dated to the early Bronze Age. Two small pits, located 160m apart contained fragments of probable Collared Urn, along with a residual Beaker vessel in one. This pit also contained a number of small flint flakes and charred wheat, apple and hazelnut fragments. In the absence of evidence to the contrary it seems likely that this activity was domestic.
