A pit cluster and post holes, which may represent a rectangular building, were found during an excavation. Flints and pottery dating to the Neolithic period were also found. The site probably represented a Neolithic settlement and was located around Brook Street, Warwick.
1 More than 30 shallow pits containing early Neolithic flints and pottery were found, together with a number of small post holes which may represent a rectangular building. Evidence is thus gradually accumulating for the existence of a settlement of some size and importance on the Warwick hilltop in early Neolithic times. There was also a fine ‘Beaker-type’ arrowhead.
2 Further small pits containing Neolithic material were found, confirming intensive use of the Brook Street area in Neolithic times.
