Roman Features at Coughton Court, Warwickshire

Description of this historic site

Roman features and finds recovered during excavations at Coughton Court included two pits, a ditch and substantial amounts of pottery.

Notes about this historic site

1 The edges of two conjoined pits were uncovered together with a possible ditch that crossed the trench (E) east-west before apparently turning south. Roman pottery was associated with both sets of features. Sufficent residual Roman pottery was found across the site to point to Roman occupation in the vicinity.
A square post hole (B62) and a shallow gully (B69) may be Roman or prehistoric in date. An absence of finds confounds dating but the gully potentially has Neolithic associations.
