Full Description

An assemblage of various finds was recovered during an unsystematic field survey to the southeast of Hopwell Cottage Farm. Prehistoric finds included what was identified as a Neolithic 'horseshoe' scraper, a Bronze Age end scraper. Two sherds of Roman pottery were collected, and one green-blue glass Saxon bead. A variety of medieval pottery, including 14th or 16th century midlands purple pottery, and a lower stone of a grooved hand quern. A larger number of post medieval pottery was recovered, seemingly dating to the 16th and 17th through to the 19th centuries. (1)
