Abstract:
Excavations were undertaken in advance of the construction of a sports centre. A number of prehistoric artefacts had been recovered in the vicinity of the site, whilst Roman pits and a scatter of Roman material had been identified. A number of brickfields also lay in the surrounding area. Two earlier phases of evaluation at the proposal site had revealed Romano-British pits, post-holes and ditches. During the excavation and a subsequent watching brief, further features were recorded. Two parallel linear features containing fire-cracked flints were found, one of which had been cut by a Romano-British post-hole. It was considered possible that the features may have been of prehistoric date. Ditches representing a 1st-2nd century AD field system, and post-holes and a possible pond of a similar date, were recorded. Some of the post-holes may have represented a fence-line. The use of most of the ditches of the field system continued through the 3rd century AD. Further features of the 3rd/early 4th centuries included a post-hole or pit located centrally within a pit. Ditches believed to have formed part of a post-medieval field system, on a similar alignment to the Romano-British field system, were observed, and several further undated features were recorded. Artefacts recovered included pottery spanning the period from the Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age to the 19th century, the majority of which was Romano-British, post-medieval brick and tile, Romano-British tile, and post-medieval and Romano-British glass.
