Beaker and Early Bronze Age activity, and a possible Beaker valley entrenchment, in Cuckoo Bottom, near Lewes, East Sussex

by Michael J. Allen

Speculative examination of a series of trees and shrubs uprooted by the 'Great Storm' in 1987 at Cuckoo Bottom, at the head of the Houndean Bottom dry valley, revealed prehistoric features and colluvium. A number of Beaker and Early Bronze Age sherds were recovered from the colluvium and from a ditch thought to be a part of the valley entrenchment. The combination of careful examination, recovery of artefacts and land-snail analysis recorded a Beaker occupation site akin to that in Ashcombe Bottom buried under hillwash. Further evidence for Beaker valley entrenchment is suggested.
