Abstract:
Archaeological fieldwork comprising fieldwalking, excavation of subsoil features and a subsoil search for finds was undertaken within an area of land to be used for quarrying. Large numbers of worked flint were collected ranging in date from the Mesolithic through to Iron Age tools. Small quantities of Bronze Age pottery were collected and an increasing amount of Iron Age pottery was noted. Roman pottery was distributed all over the field. 113 charcoal-filled pits were investigated and a number of these had finds of Late Iron Age and Roman pottery. Medieval finds ranged from 13th and 17th century coins and a few sherds of pottery. A post-medieval ditch with associated finds was also located running west to east across the field. [AIP]
