Abstract:
The north western half of the site was confirmed to be sterile of archaeology however the half of the site above the break of slope contained several archaeological features. A series of shallow agricultural furrows. These were of uncertain date but probably indicate pre-improvement agriculture. These features overlay the outlying features of a stone lined kiln. Several fragments of early medieval pottery were recovered from the fill of the stone lined kiln. Taken as part of complex in the wider archaeological landscape the presence of these kilns suggests large scale agricultural production in the early medieval period. This is supported by the presence of a smaller, robbed out kiln, which may represent an earlier phase of occupation. Other smaller features were excavated and recorded but the mobility and truncation of sediments made them difficult to define.
