Notes about this historic site

1 Geophysical Survey. A field immediately west of Manduessedum has been partly surveyed using geophysical equipment, only the eastern half was covered. Field walking recovered a line of masonry with opus signum, broken tile used for channelling heat around from a hypercuast and a piece of painted wall plaster. The tile looked very much like the product from a kiln to the south of Nuneaton.
