Possible Roman Field System at Windmill Business Park, Napton on the Hill

Description of this historic site

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.

Notes about this historic site

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.
