Notes about this historic site

1 1964: During excavations which were intended to locate the Red Horse of Tysoe four fragments of 3rd – 4th century Roman pottery were found.
2 1968: An interrupted trench cut on a 1 to 5 gradient around the 183m contour produced about 30 Roman sherds in two rubble layers separated by clean hill-wash, and possibly associated with stone walls. The rubble died out towards the lower end of the trench, where bedrock came to within 15cm of the surface.
