Notes about this historic site

1 Lower part of linch pin of brooch of the Yorkshire type found during field work on the course of the M40. It is impossible to tell if it is either Celtic or Roman.
2 Similar to 1, reprinted from Britannia Vol. XXI, including illustration of linch pin. Could have come from a Roman army vehicle, but unclear whether Celtic or Roman in origin. Described as being found “on the course of the M40 near the point where it crosses the Stratford-on-Avon canal”.
