Full Description

A field-walking and metal detector survey were carried out in this field in 2013/14: * A very small late Mesolithic/early Neolithic flint scatter, mainly in the southern half of the field. * A moderate scatter of late 3rd/early 4th century AD Roman pottery, comprising abraded sherds of grey ware, locally made oxidised ware, Derbyshire ware, and Nene Valley mortaria. Moderate scatter of fragments of dark grey Charnwood slate and fire cracked pebbles. All the above were located in the southern third of the field. Possibly represents a low-status farmstead with a possible pottery and tile manufacturing site in the vicinity. * A very small scatter of 13th-14th century medieval sand ware sherds, representing jars, bowls and pancheons. * Background scatter of mid 17th - late 19th century pottery, mostly Ticknall pancheon and butterpot ware, with some cream ware and pearl ware vessels.
