Archaeology Notes

NN74NE 72 774 459

Unenclosed settlement (possible).

(Undated) information in NMRS.

NN 773 458 In January 2001 an archaeological watching brief was carried out on the excavation of a cable trench in the vicinity of unscheduled archaeological sites, notably a group of cropmarks interpreted as the possible remains of an unenclosed settlement (NMRS NN74NE 72).

The only feature of possible archaeological interest was a thin band of silting, seen in a small area to the N of the site. No artefactual remains were encountered within the silt, and it seems likely that this was a natural feature.
