Notes about this historic site

Observation of possible Romano British deposits.

1 A note in the margin of the annotated map (34NW) indicates a position at the recorded National Grid Reference with the following comment: “Layer of burning and gravel at depth of 5″ in water-main trench. April ’68. S.J.T.”.
2 There are also section drawings in the FI file with a note that this find was on the route of the Fosse, but this is unlikely.
3 Nothing was visible on a subsequent site visit.3
