Abstract:
An excavation was carried out within part of a proposed redevelopment site. An area of the site immediately to the north of the excavation had been evaluated in 1994, prior to a previous redevelopment, and two ditches and a pit of Roman date had been revealed. During the excavation, a ditch of probable Bronze Age date was revealed, and prehistoric pottery and struck flints were recovered. The pottery and the majority of the flints were of Bronze Age origin, although individual Mesolithic and Neolithic flint tools were identified. Two ditches and two inhumations of Roman date, medieval ditches and pits, a possible medieval water hole and fourteen undated features were also recorded. No artefacts or features of late medieval or post-medieval date were found. It was noted that the occupation sequence at the site was similar to that recorded at nearby sites, and it was suggested that the cessation of occupation in the late medieval period may have occurred as a result of the onset of renewed flooding in the area, which had been prone to flooding prior to settlement in the later Roman period.
