'About fourteen years ago [ie c. 1889], when some pipes were being laid in Green Lane, Burbage, a piece of "pitching" was laid bare at a point near to Sycamore Cottages. From its worn, but workmanlike, construction, it appeared to be Roman. A coarse jar of pottery was embedded alongside. It was discovered by one of the workmen, who sold it (the pottery jar) to a passing visitor. The information was given to Mr [Micah} Salt by a foreman of the works'. (1)
