Notes about this historic site

1 Features excavated 1971-2. A small area 5.5 by 12m at the extreme E of the quarry revealed a series of shallow intersecting ditches and one inhumation. No overall structure could be defined and their purpose remains uncertain. A shallow scoop contained an enamel inlaid seal-box lid of the 2nd century cut through a single burial at its S end. This N-S burial was contained within a wooden coffin and 179 studs from a pair of boots were found at its feet. Most of the pottery from the site was 2nd century AD.
