Notes about this historic site

1 During the excavation of trial trenches, EWA6715, a gully aligned north east-south west was recorded in trench 4. It contained 56 sherds of late Iron Age/early Romano-British pottery. The size of the sherds and their unabraded nature suggests that they had been deposited directly in the gully and that some activity may have been carried out here. However the feature was isolated and there was no indication of other Iron Age activity in the vicinity. A single sherd of Romano-British pottery was recovered from trench 9.
