Notes about this historic site

1 1968: Rescue excavation on a ring ditch (PRN 6079) in advance of bypass construction revealed Neolithic features. The site is on a gently rising hillock just above the flood plain. A cluster of nine shallow hollows which are similar in size and shape to storage hollows on Neolithic sites. Hollow 1 produced sherds of Early Neolithic pottery. 31 sherds were recovered; these are similar to the Neolithic sherds from Warwick. The hollows were probably originally for storage.
