Abstract:
The investigations revealed significant archaeological remains, dating from the Roman period onwards. The earliest activity on the site comprised a substantial cut feature into which appeared to be a set number of wooden structures, including a fence, stake alignments and a track. The exact function of the complex, probably a pond or channel, remained unclear. Pottery recovered from the complex comprised a few sherds of Roman second to fourth century AD date. However, radiocarbon and dendrochronological dating of the wood structures suggests a late sixth to early seventh century date for the complex. It seems likely therefore that there was some continuity of activity in the area from the Late Roman into the post-Roman period. Within the areas defined by the ditches were a number of discrete pits. The features may have been contemporary with a major rebuilding of St. Peter's Church and the construction of Conisbrough Castle in the 12th century. [Au(abr)]
