MONUMENT NO. 380213

DESCRIPTION + /

Excavation uncovered the site of a Roman building with two small wings, dated to the 4th century AD, it appears to have been converted to agricultural use. An earlier villa may be in the vicinity of this building indicated by finds of tesserae, marble veneer, roof and flue tiles. A silver-gilt Iron Age beaked brooch was found and a hoard of late Romano-British metal work was discovered. The hoard, dated to the 4th or 5th century AD consisted of a large bronze cauldron containing seven other smaller cauldrons, with iron objects including a cauldron hanger, beside it. It had apparently been inserted into the upper fill of a pit which contained large quantities of mid-late 1st century pottery including a pedestal urn, a Gallo-Belgic derived platter and a sherd of decorated Samian ware. The hoard is in the possession of the landowner and finder.
