Notes about this historic site

1 A recut ditch, about 0.9m deep, has been discovered. This had a sandy bottom for the most part, but traces of a light silt in the recut indicate that it may at one time have been waterfilled. The ditch has been dated by pottery found in its fill to the 12th-13th century. The pottery was of local manufacture. A lump of greenish-blue fused slag was also found as were nails, brick, tiles and mortar.
