NT 461 800 (NT48SE 3) An evaluation was carried out, 23 April – 9 May 2016, in the Glebe Field. The excavations targeted geophysical anomalies reported to be two timber buildings of possible Anglo-Saxon date. The work

uncovered structural remains, all were of stone, including cellular buildings and a possible, but still yet undefined, large wall, probably part of a larger structure identified in the earlier geophysical surveys.

The recovered artefacts are indicative of activity from the mid first millennium AD into the post-medieval period. More specifically, bone combs and an Anglo-Saxon coin show activity during the c7–9th centuries, a date supported by a C14 date on material from under one of the stone

features, which returned a date between the 7th and 9th centuries cal AD.
