Probable Roman features at 6 Newport Drive, Alcester
Probable Roman feature filled with compacted pebbles along with other probably Roman soil layers perhaps associated with the nearby cemetery or adjacent fields.
1 A probable Roman steep-sided and flat-bottomed feature was discovered, backfilled with very compact small to medium pebbles and containing a sherd of Romano-British pottery. It is of unknown extent (as only its southern edge was recorded), and of unknown function.
Further dark clay loam and pebble layers were also found with two sherds of Romano-British pottery in one of the layers. These may have been associated with the nearby cemetery or adjacent fields.
There was no evidence of the Roman ditch recorded to the east of the area in the 1960s, nor was there any evidence of human burial.
