Abstract:
The archaeological watching brief identified two areas of archaeological significance. The first was next to the Ouzel Brook and the second lay along the north side of a small wood adjacent to Billington Road. Iron Age and Romano-British pottery was found in the alluvium deposited by the Ouel Brook. The earliest dated from the Late Iron Age, whilst the latest Romano-British pottery belonged to the 3rd or 4th century AD. No archaeological features were found associated with the pottery but it was likely that it was derived from an area of occupation nearby. Previous archaeological work along the line of the Brook also produced evidence of Romano-British activity, including ditches found beneath the alluvial layer. Two features were found to the north side of the small wood adjacent to Billington Road, consisting of a ditch that contained Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age pottery. A short distance away, set into the natural clay, was a large pottery storage vessel dated to the same period. The ditch and the storage vessel together suggested that this might have been the remains of an enclosed occupation site. [Au(abr)]
