Abstract


A concentration of archaeological features identified and excavated at the quarry included three short cists, one containing a cannel coal and jet disc-bead necklace and another a poorly-preserved skeleton and a Food Vessel. Finds appeared to be from the Early Bronze Age but a radiocarbon date from the skeletal material gave a later date of c. 2845 BP. Other finds included two parallel ditches associated with an area of packed gravel and cobbles which could represent a degraded section of the Roman road known to run close to the site. Includes
