1 Part of an Iron Age settlement comprised at least three subrectangular enclosures and a nearby oval enclosure or ring ditch was recorded during excavation at the former Peugeot Works. All three enclosures contained small pit groups and arcs of ditches in two enclosures suggest the presence of roundhouses. A small pottery assemblage including scored ware, date these enclosures to the mid-late Iron Age, while a burnished vessel from the ring ditch might suggest a period of
usage in the 2nd-1st centuries BC.
