Abstract:
Limited desk-based study and an evaluation were carried out at the proposed site of a housing development. An Iron Age hillfort lay in the vicinity of the site, and a rubbish pit containing 3rd-4th century pottery had been found nearby. Romano-British and later pottery and medieval finds had also been recovered in the area. During the evaluation, evidence of extensive Iron Age activity was identified. Finds included slag, animal bone, pottery and baked clay; some of the clay contained clear impressions of wattle. A deposit which may have represented the upper fill of an Iron Age ditch was noted, and a pit containing stone, bone and 1st-2nd century pottery was recorded. The remains of a Romano-British structure were also excavated. Features included a probable robbed wall and a dense layer of worn stone cobbling, probably an internal floor. Later remains included medieval and post-medieval pottery, a medieval pit and a post-medieval animal burial which accorded with anecdotal evidence that pig carcasses had been buried at the site. It was concluded that the features were of local importance, and that provision should be made for their preservation by record. [AIP]
