Notes

A Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman religious site, and medieval moot. The first deposits consisted of five Bronze Age cremations dating between 1400 and 1000 BC. A later Iron Age religious centre is implied through the discovery of over 200 gold and bronze coins and 50 brooches, mostly in mint condition. A succeeding Romano-Celtic temple was excavated in 1927, 1935-7, and between 1962-71. The first phase dated to the last quarter of the 1st century AD. The temple was extensively altered in the 3rd century and continued in use into the 4th century. A life size statue head of Minerva was found in the 4th century levels. The mound was later used as a Saxon and medieval moot. Scheduled.
