Description

Two phases of Roman activity were encountered. Evidence of this activity included two large pits dug to extract the natural clay. These and the presence of twelve wasters of 2nd or 3rd century grey ware suggest that pottery manufacture was taking place nearby in the Roman period. In the second phase of Roman activity a cobble surface was associated with a ditch running north-west to south-east and two stake-holes. No Anglian activity was found but there was a series of rubbish pits (including one with a wattle lining), west of a palisade trench, dated to the 10th-11th centuries. A little later in the 11th-12th century, two post-built structures were erected, separated by a fence. All the occupation levels from these buildings had been destroyed by the ploughing which had taken place on site until the 19th century.
