Abstract:
Report on excavations conducted at a hilltop site, near Caistor, which was revealed during quarrying. Although deposits were truncated by ploughing and erosion, the small area of land as yet untouched by quarrying yielded remains of a Saxon settlement, comprising three Grubenhäuser, and possible Bronze Age barrow evinced by a group of three buried pots, one containing a cremation. Scattered finds of Mesolithic and Neolithic date were also found, thus indicating a long history of occupation in the vicinity. There are sections discussing the prehistoric and Anglo-Saxon pottery, general metal finds, Anglo-Saxon vessel glass, and Anglo Saxon loomweights. Specialist contributions comprise: `The struck flint' by Frances Healy (15-19); `The Bronze Age cremation burial' by Jacqueline McKinley (19); `The great square-headed brooch' by John Hines (26-7); `Animal bones from Anglo-Saxon deposits' by David Berg (30-4); and `The carbonized plant remains' by Wendy J Carruthers (34-5). The report concludes with a general discussion of evidence for Anglo-Saxon settlement in the Caistor area.
