Iron Age - C2


Cropmark


Two adjacent single ditched rectilinear enclosures with a droveway through the centre visible as cropmarks from the air. Excavation in 2003 showed that this was a multi-phase Iron Age site. The excavation identified three distinct phases. The earliest was a series of rectangular enclosures defined by continuous slots containing posts. The second phase was represented by an unenclosed farmstead of at least 10 huts, some of which had been successively reconstructed. In the third phase timber huts were constructed within two sub-rectilinear enclosures. Dating evidence is consistent with a Mid to Late Iron Age date range for these latter phases of settlement. No material dating to the Romano-British period was found suggesting that the settlement was no longer in use by the time of Roman occupation of northern Britain. Final report forthcoming.
