Notes about this historic site

1 Described as a rectangular feature with an elliptical end.
2 A rectangular feature, a ?cursus, is at a right angle to the nearby stream.
6 The interpretation of the cursus appears dubious. There is no clearly defined bowed NW end and the visible linear cropmarks are roughly parallel with other ditched boundaries which are probably associated with the Roman site to the N.
7 Plan.
8 Interpreted as a Neolithic “oblong” enclosure.
