Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out at the proposed site of a housing development. In the surrounding area, Mesolithic, Neolithic and later prehistoric material had been found, and a probable Bronze Age ring ditch had been identified. Roman material was well-represented in the area, and a considerable quantity of Saxon pottery and metals had been found to the north-east of Burnham Market. The Saxon finds suggested the presence of important, non-domestic activity. During the evaluation, substantial survival of archaeological remains across the whole site was demonstrated. Sealed beneath a sandy overburden, features and deposits produced evidence dated predominantly to two distinct periods, between the 2nd to 3rd centuries AD and the 10th-14th centuries AD. Roman features comprised essentially ditches aligned frrom east to west in the south-west of the site. Late Saxon and medieval activity was represented by a grid-like layout of ditches, perhaps including a major east-to-west land division, one post-hole building and a number of pits. [Au(adp)]
