Summary

Excavation identified two pits, both of which had been subject to heat, either the result of burning in situ or the disposal of
hot material. Both pits were characteristic of charcoal and burnt flint-filled features which are often known to have a prehistoric date. However, despite known Neolithic activity in the vicinity, a radiocarbon date of 370AD +/-50 was returned on a charcoal sample, placing one pit in the later Roman or Early Saxon period.
