Description

Parent record for deposit model points A watching brief was undertaken on three trial-pits in advance of proposed extensions. Apart from an opportunity to gain information on site topography, this was also an opportunity to investigate the Roman roads thought to be in this area. No direct evidence of a road or, indeed, any Roman activity was found; it is, however, possible that an obstruction encountered during augering was a road. Evidence was revealed relating to post-medieval and modern activity on the site.
