Notes about this historic site

1 A miscellaneous collection of pottery from a hole in the middle of the village. Seventeen pieces of Samian, various orange and grey ware pot sherds. Two Medieval sherds show that the group was not sealed. The collection has almost certainly been ‘weeded’. Of the Roman material all except the BBI dish would be acceptable in a mid 2nd century context, although two vessels could be later than 2nd century. The BBI dish is 1st century.
