Monument record MYO4279 - Roman features at Connaught Court

Summary

Cut features of early Roman date including pits, ditches and a posthole were found during an evaluation at Connought Court in 2004. They exhibited a limited degree of intercutting, suggesting that they represent more than a simple single phase of activity. The nature of the features present suggests that the site contains elements of the Roman agricultural landscape. One of the trenches also encountered a large early ditch, which may date from the late prehistoric period, although it did not contain any datable artefacts. A single sherd of probable Iron Age pottery was found in a later deposit in this trench.
