Excavation of Roman Enclosure System - 'Site K'
During an excavation Roman features and finds were uncovered. A number of ditches may represent the remains of a field system. Three pits were also found and at least one of these was probably a well. The site was 800m east of the M40 Avon Bridge at Barford.
