This assessment has indicated that the site lies within part of an extensive Roman cemetery. However, investigations within the vicinity of the site have consistently revealed substantial thicknesses of medieval to post-medieval soil horizons, which seal the Roman features. These soil deposits have been in excess of 1m thick and in one case as much as 2m thick. It is reasonable to assume that a similar thickness of soil will be present on the site considered by this assessment. The site is unlikely to contain archaeological
