MONUMENT NO. 879402

DESCRIPTION + /

A multi period site, including a Late Bronze Age circular enclosure containing at least 3 round houses and other structures. During the Saxon period, the site was partially overlain by an Early Saxon cemetery and by later settlement activity. The cremation cemetery dated to the period 425-650, the inhumation cemetery from 450-599. There was a hiatus before the creation of a small settlement of at least 13 buildings which occupied the site from the 10th-12th centuries. The late Saxon phase of the site is probably 10-11th century in date. It includes a large longhouse or hall, measuring 20 by 6 metres, with a hearth and internal partitions. The site also yielded a late 10th century coin of Aethelread II.
