Abstract

An Iron Age enclosed settlement containing a roundhouse was found situated on a gravel terrace slightly above the local flood plain. Associated contemporary ditched field systems were also located, and a series of earlier parallel ditches sealed beneath deposits from a period of alluviation. These latter ditches are probably of Neolithic date and are interpreted as territorial boundary markers.
