Notes about this historic site

1 Excavation of a complex of features (see PRN 3000, PRN 5358) one of which was a pit which contained fragments of a male skeleton. In addition a grave was recorded with bones of an 11-12 year old child and bones from a second skeleton. The pit could have been Mesolithic/Neolithic, as it contained flint, but the other burial was undated, possibly Roman.
