Iron Age, Early Bronze Age
Reports on investigations undertaken between 1978 and 1982 which revealed a penannular ring-ditch, ring-groove houses and a polygonal enclosure with antennae ditches. Evidence suggests that this enclosure was later replaced by a more substantial ditch and bank which then became levelled when a series of stone-paved houses were constructed. There are specialist contributions on: `Early Bronze Age artefacts' by Alison Sheridan (212); `Small finds' by Fraser Hunter (233--40); `Coarse stone' by Abigail C Gleeson (240--2); and `Animal bone' by Jennifer Thoms (242).
