During drainage in October 1957, he excavated one of four patches (two in each field) and revealed hearth 2 feet 6 inches below surface which contained sooty black earth and Rom pottery described as sherds of coarse red and buff ware. Brown describes this as a pottery making site and queries the existence of a hut in one of the black earth areas near the excavated hearth (S1)(S2)(S3).
