Abstract

Between the 18th and 20th May 2011, OA East conducted an archaeological excavation at the proposed extension to Whilton Sewage and Water Treatment site (SP 6205 6522). The excavation uncovered a series of parallel linear features from which Roman pottery was found. Investigation of the features proved them to be much more recent in date, probably late 20th century. The Roman pottery must therefore have derived from the topsoil and subsoil on the site implying the presence of Roman settlement near to the excavation area possibly located on higher ground beyond the development area to the north-west.
