Notes about this historic site

1 A complex of walls. Much disturbed by ploughing and tree growth, but there appeared to be several buildings covering a long period. The earlier buildings were well-built with mortared masonry, the later foundations are unmortared. Four phases were distinguished – a C1 timber and daub structure, an early stone building overlain by a thick C2 occupation layer and above this a further complex of walls. Dating is well-established by Samian and coins ranging from Republican to late C4.
2 Site no 25 in list.
