Tyne and Wear HER(16459): Benwell, Pendower Way, ditch - Details
Benwell, Pendower Way, ditch
East-west aligned ditch or gully thought to be Roman in date. A portion of the ditch was excavated in 2012 by TWM. It measured 2.8m in width and was 0.7m deep. In profile the ditch had a steeply sloping northern face, a rounded base, and a southern face which was steeply sloping towards the base but became shallower to the south. Roman pottery was found within the ditch fill. Environmental samples indicated a background level of domestic waste. The feature may have been associated with an individual plot or area within the Condercum vicus.
