Full Description

July 2000:Small ditches seen in footing trenches behind Building 414 on Thunderbird Way.
Archaeological monitoring at TL 7264 8012 during military housing refurbishment on Thunderbird Way and Kennedy Street, uncovered Roman features and buried soils. The pottery dating of the features indicated that the main phase of activity was in the c. 2nd to 3rd centuries AD and that these were then sealed by buried soil deposits containing material from the late 3rd and 4th centuries AD. This evidence extends the known area of Roman settlement on the base and is probably a part of the large site, ERL 089, identified immediately to the south (S2).
