Site of Roman Settlement 500m W of Barton Farm, Alderminster.

Description of this historic site

Enclosures and linear features that show up as cropmarks on aerial photographs. Field walking produced some Roman pottery sherds, suggesting a small farmstead. The site is situated 500m north of Crimscote.

Notes about this historic site

2 Aerial photographs show three sides of a possible enclosure with an additional possible enclosure to the NE.
3 Fieldwork in 1986 revealed Roman pottery and a few pieces of tile scattered widely across the crop mark complex. The densest area of pottery scatter is associated with dark earth and probably represents domestic settlement within a large rectangular enclosure.
4 Grey and orange wares predominate and Samian and tile finds are scarce. The site probably represents a small and poor Roman farmstead.
