Abstract:
Fieldwalking on the line of a water pipeline near the village of Woodhurst revealed a scatter of late Roman pottery about 1km east of the village (TL 3290 7540). Trial excavations carried out in the area of the scatter after the stripping of the easement exposed a large feature of uncertain function and a linear ditch. The relationship between these two features was obscured by later furrows but they appeared to be broadly contemporary. Finds including pottery, tile, bone, shell and coins dated the activity in the area to the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. At the west end of the pipeline, near the village a number of shallow features, which had not produced a fieldwalking signature, were revealed. Some of them may have been furrows, while others seemed to represent part of a small ditched enclosure, again proabably of late Roman date. A small piece of 4th century silver with a Latin inscription was also discovered. [Au]
