Abstract:
Excavations carried out in 2001 at Moss Carr in advance of opencast mining produced evidence of three Middle to Late Iron Age settlement enclosures that radiocarbon dating indicated were in use between c.400BC to 80 AD. Eight structures were found. Six were conventional roundhouse types of varying size, at least one of which clearly possessed splayed gullies that formed a funnel-like avenue leading to its entrance. Two of the structures were interpreted as conjoined or double roundhouses. The Iron Age dating of the enclosures was supported by the evidence of a small collection of pottery and a significant assemblage of saddle and beehive querns. The enclosures appeared to have been abandoned during the early Roman period, with one of them being partly modified for reoccupation during the late 3rd and 4th centuries. [Au(adp)]
