Abstract:
The evaluation uncovered an inhumation burial was uncovered in trench C in the western field and a daub wall was partially revealed in trench Q in the eastern field. The grave was of uncertain date and could have been Roman, Saxon or medieval. The daub wall could have been part of the foundation for a large building, probably of Roman date. In addition to this, prehistoric features were identified in the eastern field, and a concentration of medieval features was located in the western field, both in trenches adjacent to Maltings Lane. The medieval features, comprising a possible roadside ditch, gullies and post holes, appeared to date from the 12th to 14th centuries, whilst the prehistoric features were not closely datable. Some evidence for early Saxon activity in the form of pottery and pieces of antler, some of it worked, was also found in a ditch in trench K. [AIP]
