Summary

Survey work carried out on land to the south of Eldohouse Farm indicated a low archaeological potential for the area, with map/documentary searches failing to reaveal any feaures of particular note and the surface collection survey recovered the type and density of archaeological material which indicates this area was part of the zone of peripheral, off-site, activities in the past. Such activities probably included hunting as indicated by the arrowhead and flint debris, grazing livestock and occasional cultivation. The few medieval and post-medieval pottery sherds possibly deriving from manuring work.
