Notes about this historic site

1 An evaluation in advance of development uncovered a number of Romano British pits and two inhumation burials. A small assemblage of pottery, including most of a large 4th century storage jar, was found in one pit.
2 Further excavation work, as a second phase of the 2005 evaluations. Two more Roman inhumations were found This suggests this area remained largely undeveloped after the 2nd century despite lying within the settlement area. Two of the burials were decapitations, which appears to be a local tradition as a similarly macabre ritual was found in a group of burials excavated to the south in 1925.
3 1st century AD Romano-British domestic activity was found in the form of two pits containing large storage jars and a boundary sequence. Later (late 3rd-4th century) Romano-british inhumations were also found.
