Notes about this historic site

1 In the layer beneath the toe of the Roman rampart a number of hearths were uncovered. Two of these consisted of small pits cutting the pre-rampart turf line, and these contained a mass of burnt material, a quern stone and a quantity of coarse hand-made pottery, tentatively dated to the late Bronze Age – Early Iron Age.
