Activities

Archaeological Evaluation (28 February 2019 - 30 April 2019)

NS 88994 79770 (centred) Mitigation works were carried out, from 28 February to 30 April 2019 prior to residential development. An initial phase of trial trenching revealed the remains of a possible metalled trackway and a ditch containing Roman amphorae sherds. Subsequent monitoring and excavation revealed the Roman trackway and the partial remains of a ring ditch with an intact, inverted early Bronze Age cremation urn.
