Summary. Eighteen Roman burials and the remains of a Roman building were found 40m north of this site in 1971, and other burials have been recorded in this area. An evaluation trench in the garden to the rear of the property revealed 0.8m-1.0m of post-medieval topsoils sealing three post-medieval pits, the largest of which may have been a quarry-pit. Roman pottery and tile was found in a residual context in later features, but there was no evidence of Roman burials (presumably because of destruction caused by the post-medieval quarrying).
