Description

Geophysical survey, topographical survey and trial trenching was undertaken to gain further information about context of a notable metal detected find, Iron Age Mirror Handle, usually attributed to burial contexts. No features were found and area revealed to have suffered high plough damage. Small trenches may not have revealed features so context of origin was not found.
