Introduction

Land to the south of Stanegate Cottages, Newbrough, Northumberland. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: cfaarcha1-298486)

An archaeological strip and map was undertaken by CFA Archaeology Ltd at Stanegate Cottages, Newbrough during August 2017. The excavation revealed a pit which contained the remains of two AOC Beakers, three flint knives, a hollowed pebble and a single jet-like bead. This was probably the plough damaged remains of what was a much deeper pit. The artefact assemblage is typical of a Beaker funerary context and it is assumed that the pit is a ploughed-out Beaker burial. The works also identified a linear ditch, a shallow curvilinear ditch and a natural erosion ditch. The ditch features may be part of the Romano-British group of cropmarks identified to the west of the development area and may form part of a wider series of prehistoric field divisions within the landscape.
