Human skull from a mid to late first century AD ditch fill north of Tiddington Road, Tiddington.
A human skull was exposed, during trial trenching, within a mid to late first century AD ditch fill. The site is located north of Tiddington Road, Tiddington.
1 A human skull was exposed 0.1m beneath the surface of the fill of a north-south aligned ditch excavated during trial trenching. This ditch may have formed part of a co-axial field system. Tentative excavation around the skull suggested that there were no associated human remains, but this was not certain. The ditch was filled with dark grey brown sandy clay silt which produced 7 sherds of pottery which dated the fill to the mid to late 1st century AD.
