Summary

Archaeological excavation and monitoring was carried out during the construction of a small extension and associated works to Building 916. The site lies within 20m of an Early Saxon cemetery excavated in 1959 and it was thought that cemetery features might be found. However only two features were identified, one of which produced Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age pottery. This indicates possible settlement activity of this date nearby but there was no evidence that the Early Saxon cemetery continued into this area.
