Tyne and Wear HER(17771): Sunniside, Pennyfine Lane, pits and post holes - Details
Sunniside, Pennyfine Lane, pits and post holes
Postholes and pits excavated in a strip, map and record. The postholes are suggested to have been created to support a temporary prehistoric wooden structure. Paleoenvironmental analysis of samples provide evidence of domestic waste including plant remains, charred plant debris and charcoal. The report recommends that charred material is radiocarbon dated to inform the sequence of the site. Previous radiocarbon dating conducted on material obtained from the site provided a late Neolithic date.
