Abstract:
Reports the discovery of two concentric ring-ditches of a BA barrow. Re-deposited pottery indicates an EBA date, broadly contemporary with the barrow cemetery immediately to the north of the site. The ring-ditches were infilled during the EIA--MIA and pits and ditches were observed during a watching brief in 1989 cut into this deposit. The IA ditches were not seen in enough detail to establish their layout, but the quantity of well-preserved pottery indicates occupation in the vicinity. LIA activity is represented by a pit containing Belgic pottery recovered during the 1993 excavation. The excavation of 24A St Michael's Street in 1985 revealed part of the ditch from a BA barrow. No evidence for funerary activity was found. Worked flint was recovered from the ditch. For the Rex Richards buildings site, there are notes on: `Human bone' by Angela Boyle & Mary Carman (49); `Iron Age and Roman pottery' by Paul Booth (51--4); `Medieval and later pottery' by Lucy Whittingham (54--5); `Worked flint' by Philippa Bradley (55); `Worked stone' by Fiona Roe (55--6); `Copper alloy' by Leigh Allen (56); `Slag' by Chris Salter (56--7); `Animal bone' by Nicola Scott (57). For the 24A St Michael's Street site there are notes on the `Worked flint' by Philippa Bradley (59) and the `Animal bone' by Nicola Scott (59).
