Notes

Excavations uncovered the remains of Roman buildings, one containing a corn drying oven, a road surface and domestic debris indicating settlement from the 1st-4th centuries AD, possibly the site of a villa. Wall plaster, bracelets and brooches were also found. There was evidence for Late Iron Age occupation under the Roman levels. Scheduled.
