Summary. Three trial trenches were excavated. Roman pits and ditches and probably four Roman inhumations were revealed by the evaluation. All features were shallow and were covered by at least 1m of topsoil containing residual Roman pottery. This indicated that the previous land surface had been stripped at some stage, and other material dumped on top.
