Abstract
Detailed archaeological description of the results including the excavation of parts of the ditch and possible palisade around the manor. Six phases of activity have been identified. Phase 1 is probable limited prehistoric activity represented by a small number of artefacts and ardmarks although these could be related to medieval clearance of the site. In phase 2 a slot and a number of truncated post-pits preceded the stone buildings and cistern in phase 3. In phase 4 a concentration of four hearths or ovens were built inside one of the buildings. One of the buildings was used as a midden in phase 5 and this was followed by demolition and decay in phase 6.
