Possible Roman Field System at Windmill Business Park, Napton on the Hill
Several ditches and gullies of Roman date were found during an excavation. They might represent the remains of a Roman field system. The features were found to the north west of Napton Hill.
1 Archaeological evaluation found a small area of undisturbed features principally of early Roman date. Most of the site had been quarried for clay.
2 A small excavation was undertaken in 1996 in advance of development. Small quantities of residual flint and middle Iron Age pottery were recovered and multiple ditches and gullies represented part of a late Iron Age/early Romano British settlement. The site was occupied through the 1st – 2nd centuries and was of relatively low status.
