Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out at the proposed site of a new village hall and access road. Evidence of medieval settlement had previously been recorded at the site and within adjacent areas to the west. At least one medieval house foundation, pre-12th century ditches and boundaries, and a ditch and post hole containing Late Iron Age or Romano-British pottery had been revealed within the site; parts of the medieval settlement survived as low earthworks. During the evaluation, evidence for the date and development of the major lynchet at the site was recorded. Structural remains relating to a probable house and boundary walls and buried soil horizons of Romano-British date were revealed. Assessment of the area of possible Late Iron Age activity revealed a ditch containing no dating evidence. Romano-British, medieval and post-medieval pottery and several worked flint flakes were recovered. [AIP]
