Notes about this historic site

2 Possible ring ditch or enclosure, other enclosures and linear features show on air photographs. Some of these marks are probably natural. The crop marks are impossible to plot because of a lack of reference points.
3 The cropmark features were evaluated and then partially excavated in 1991 in advance of the construction of a golf course. Trial trenches revealed the presence of a series of enclosures, possible round houses, possible rectilinear buildings, a well and a possible corndrying/malting oven. The coins and pottery indicate that the site was occupied from the late 1st century to the 4th century, with the main period of occupation in the 2nd century (see report in FI file).
