A programme of strip, map and sample was undertaken to excavate the features present. The works involved soil stripping from the northernmost corner and moving south towards where an excavation was carried out by YAT in 2012. Stripping in the northern most area ceased once it was realised the scope of contamination was too severe to continue, or where the extent of the previous excavation was encountered. Archaeological features dating to the Roman and medieval periods were present on the site. A series of Roman ditches dating to the 2nd-3rd centuries were interspersed across the site, as well as three probable medieval furrows situated to the east of the site.
