Archaeology Notes

NS38NE 76 NS 360 860

An iron-smelting bloomery, consisting of a small bowl furnace along with deposits of slag and industrial waste and

metalworking debris, was discovered during the watching brief. All archaeological features were fully excavated. It appears that the bloomery was located on an artificially created platform.

Report lodged with WoSAS SMR and NMRS.
