Abstract

The excavation revealed an archaeological sequence that spanned the Mesolithic to Roman periods. During the Bronze Age it appears that the site was used for funerary activity with the remnant of a linear cremation cemetery surviving in the western part of the site, in close proximity to a post-built structure and ring gully. These were centred on the site of a putative spring head identified at the base of a sequence of later water-holes.
