Abstract:
Twenty six trial trenches were excavated in advance of proposed development consisting of university buildings, car parks, with landscaping and associated groundworks. The evaluation revealed evidence of two separate settlement areas; an early Romano-British site was found in the north-west field (c.70-120/130 AD), and a Middle to later Iron Age site (c.300-1BC) was uncovered in the south field. Residual worked flint and Late Bronze Age pottery was also found in later features, indicating a background Bronze Age presence in the area. [Au(abr)]
