Abstract:
A watching brief was carried out during groundworks associated with the construction of a new church centre, at a site which was known to have been used for agriculture until the area was developed for housing in the 19th century. A Mesolithic flint-knapping site of national importance had been recorded 220m to the east of the site, and the main range of buildings of the medieval priory of St Denys had lain nearby. During the watching brief, four ditches and a ditch or pit containing Roman artefacts were recorded. Three undatable features, a remnant ploughsoil and another ditch were also observed. The variety of Roman finds, and the types of pottery and building material recovered, suggested the presence of habitations, incuding a high-status building, nearby. [AIP]
