Description

A programme of limited ecavation and monitoring was undertaken along the route of a new water main on the site of a known ring ditch. Three sections were cut into the ring ditch, revealing the ditch had a max depth of 1.5m and width of 3.4m. A pit, thought to be cut by the ring ditch was also located, together with a post alignment which seemed to respect the internal edge of the ring ditch. Radicarbon dating undertaken on a charcoal sample for one of the post holes suggested a LBA or EIA date, but the provenance of the sample may be suspect. A ditch, repesentin the northern side of a trackway, was also encountered.
