Summary

An archaeological evaluation at of 14ha across two fields at Carlton Hall Farm demonstrated the presence of three archaeological sites. The surviving archaeology in the two sites along the northern edge of the area consisted of groups of cut features which included ditches and pits and possible evidence of dwellings. The density and the nature of the features suggests that the occupation here was more than a transient presence and suggests a prolonged domestic settlement. The amount of artefactual material was small but the pottery and flintwork indicate that the site was occupied during the Neolithic (2000-3000BC) and the Bronze-Age (2000-700BC) periods. A third site consisted of medieval ditches.
