Excavations in 1970
… excavation of site I continues to uncover timber buildings, metalled yards, ovens and gullies. Unstratified finds include two similar bronze statues of Mars, one in Classical style, the other in a more 'native' rendering.” (Britannia, 1971)
The statuettes are now held in the Scunthorpe Museum. Thealby Roman iron mine (SE9018) lies only a couple of miles to the north of the settlement, and the Humber crossing at Winteringham lay only about three miles to the north-east.
