Abstract:
During an archaeological evaluation, a buried soil of probable prehistoric date was the earliest deposit encountered; this produced a small quantity of calcined bone, three conjoining sherds of Bronze Age or Early Iron Age pottery and a few charred seeds. Medieval activity was represented by a pit of 12th-14th century date; the remaining features and deposits comprised 16th-20th century pits and layers located across the trench. The interpretation of these features was not clear, although a 19th century pit identified at the western end of the trench may have been a cesspit or well. A sample from one of the post-medieval pits was largely composed of humic matter, including leaves, twigs and roots, indicative of pit composting. [Au(abr)]
