Romano-british Building

SK943077 – A number of Roman structures have been located on man-made terraces. Features included a well, about 16 feet (5m) deep which contained 20 sheep’s heads, assorted sheep bones and colour-coated pottery sherds dated c.270AD. Buildings beneath the main isled-barn give a terminal post quem of around the first quarter of the third century.
