Full Description

Fieldwalking by Trent & Peak Archaeological Unit in 1994 identified 3 sherds of Romano-British pottery (1st century and 4th century) in two fields. (1) Subsequent trenching by ARCUS in one of the fields (SK361748) revealed two linear features. One of these proved to be a small trench or gulley with a single fill and containing two sherds of Romano-British greyware. Another trench in the same field exposed a buried ploughsoil. At the intersection of this with the modern ploughsoil two medieval sherds were found. A hammerhead rim from a Romano-British mortarium (3rd - 4th century AD) and a medieval body sherd were found in the machining spoil. (2)
