Notes about this historic site

1 1953: Animal bones, pot boilers, Roman pottery and piles found in a marsh. The dating given to this pottery was purely tentative. The pottery and most of the other finds are with Birmingham University. These finds were made on marshy ground, apparently when the course of a stream was being diverted recently. The area is being ‘bulldozed’ and cleared generally, ready for cultivation. An insufficient examination of the site or of the miscellaneous finds had so far been made for an accurate assessment to be attempted concerning the nature of this site.
2 Dating revised to between the Late Bronze Age and the Romano British periods.
