Abstract:
Rescue excavations by Archaeology South-East (University College London Field Archaeology Unit) revealed evidence of parts of a Romano-British and medieval ditched field system, medieval smithing slag and traces of a possible building made of flint with a tiled roof. Roman activity falls within a broad date range between the mid- 1st and 4th centuries AD. Medieval pottery suggests a focus of activity in the late 13th-14th centuries, although some continuation into the early 15th century is also indicated. The presence of worked and burnt flint at the site, in addition to a solitary Middle to Late Bronze Age feature, suggests prehistoric activity in the vicinity. A single, poorly preserved Anglo-Saxon grave, carbon dated to cal. AD 680-890, with an east-west orientation, was also located.
