Notes about this historic site

1 Archaeological evaluation undertaken by Warwickshire Museum. Excavation of trench 1 revealed a steep-sided, flat-bottomed gully cut into the natural. It was aligned roughly WNW-ESE. In its base were three part-circular, steep-sided, flat-bottomed cuts which may have been post-holes. This array of features may have been the foundation for a fence. The two sherds of Romano British pottery recovered from the gully’s fill would appear to suggest the likely date.
2 Archaeological observation of groundworks of an extension to a house in Charlecote Road. A Romano-British ditch was identified, which will have belonged to the Iron Age/Romano-British field system known from previous excavations at 2/3 Charlecote Road.
