Abstract:
Remains of a prehistoric roundhouse within a palisade enclosure were identified during an archaeological evaluation in advance of a quarry extension in 1999. In accordance with planning conditions an archaeological excavation was undertaken in 2002; the excavation identified two phases of roundhouse construction dating to the Late Bronze Age, which were associated with two human cremations. While radiocarbon dates showed further evidence of activity dating to the Neolithic and Middle Iron Age, no additional significant structures were identified.
