Notes about this historic site

1 In Hall sand-pit, 200m SW of the find of an Early Bronze Age beaker (PRN 2678) and N of the E portion of the Saxon cemetery (PRN 2679) a bucket urn was found in 1936. The vessel, which was in a very fragmentary condition, had been buried at a depth of 0.46m in the sand. No other finds were made, although a black stain in the sand could have been the remains of a body. The urn is of the Deverel-Rimbury bucket-urn class.
