Abstract:
The results of an archaeological evaluation by trial trenching of land off No.14 Winston Drive, South Creake. The area is a former playground and makes up part of a proposed planning application for the overall plot of a single residential development. The proposed development site is located adjacent to where a number of Roman coins and a Roman bronze figurine have previously been found. A single evaluation trench measuring c.10m by 1.8m revealed two Romano-British ditches at 90° orientation to one another. The smaller ditch may be a former boundary ditch and was associated with two small postholes. It contained a few sherds of pottery which appear to indicate a 3rd to 4th century deposition date. The larger ditch is estimated to measure c. 2m wide and has survived to a depth of 0.85m. It contained dark grey deposits flecked by charcoal from which a well preserved assemblage of finds was collected. These include a coin of the emperor Gratian (367-383 AD), butchered animal bone, pottery sherds of fine non-local table wares, as well as more utilitarian locally produced wares of 3rd to 4th century date and clay fragments from a hearth.
