Notes about this historic site

1 In 1983 the excavation was still in process, although nearing completion, ahead of renovation work on Home Farm and its outbuildings. The E half of the area has produced virtually no information, while the W half has uncovered numerous pits, ditches and slots with finds datable to the 1st century. No buildings have been found. The lack of evidence to the E could be a result of the limit of Roman settlement being reached. The extent of Roman occupation would appear to be limited to the top of the plateau.
2 The finds are in Coventry Museum awaiting sorting and accessioning.
3 Noted in Britannia (1984).
