Summary. Two trenches were excavated and there were two linear features, one in each trench. F1 included a handful of modern glazed pottery and two worked flint scrapers; F2 contained no finds. The trenches were excavated down to the solid natural clay. No archaeological material or features were observed during the course of the evaluation. The thin layer of topsoil and small amount of subsoil overlying natural geological material may indicate that the area had been subjected to reduction or levelling in the relatively recent past.
