Notes about this historic site

1 It has been reported by a member of the South Staffordshire Archaeological and Historical Society, that fieldwalking has recovered evidence for an extensive Romano British site at this location.
2 The South Staffs Archaeological and Historical Society work was a metal detector survey. Evaluation trenches put in by OAU in 1993 clipping the south of the site failed to identify evidence for Roman settlement. Fieldwalking (see WA 7358-9) also failed to recover any Roman pottery in an area east and south of the site. It is concluded that the main area of Roman activity indicated by the surface finds probably does not extend into the area affected by the BNRR along Grove Road. However there is a possibility that later soilwash may be concealing Roman material.
