Abstract:
A total of 53 evaluation trenches were excavated. Several phases of archaeological activity were identified. A pit dating to the third millennium BC was excavated in the south of the development area and two prehistoric boundary ditches were excavated in the east. A concentration of Late Iron Age to later Roman activity was found in the south west of the development area. Features included an early Roman kiln and a number of ditches, gullies, pits and post holes. A geophysical survey of this area showed a strong focus of activity between trenches 31 and 40 and it was possible that further kilns were present. Several medieval features dating to the 12th century and later were excavated. The majority of the features were ditches probably originally associated with the former earthworks. Of note was a wide linear feature, possibly a hollow way rather than a large ditch. A rectilinear ditched enclosure identified on the aerial photographic plot was investigated. One sherd of 19th/20th century pottery was recovered from the south western side of the enclosure ditch. A post-medieval boundary ditch on the line of a former field boundary clearly shown on 19th century maps of the area was excavated. The foundations of two buildings recorded on the 1839 Tithe Award Map were exposed. The more northerly building was probably a barn. Its surviving foundations included re-used 16th-17th century bricks. The other buildings, possibly a store or stables, consisted of two phases of 'L'-shaped wall foundations. The earlier foundation included re-used 18th century bricks and the smaller later foundation indicated an early 19th century brick. Overall, the levelling of the site in 1984 was comprehensive with very little of the up standing earthworks surviving and only the bases of the post-medieval buildings. [Au(abr)]
