Grid Ref : SU5730045600
Summary : A possible Roman settlement consisting of pits and ditches with finds of pottery, querns and animal bones.
More information : Pits and ditches revealed by roadworks, and since
destroyed, were excavated early in 1969 (sited from plans to
area centred at SU 573456). A number of refuse pits were
excavated, and a few sections cut across ditches. A hut also
uncovered at SU 57194550, was built over a pit 6ft. 9ins. deep.
It had about six occupation levels, the lowest of large flint
stones, being at a depth of about 3ft. 6ins. 106 coins were
found in the hut and two in the pit; one was a Trajan, the
others from Tetricus to Valens. One pit at SU57194552, was
15ft. deep and was probably a well. Finds from the area include
a large number of animal bones, New Forest pottery, fragments
of querns, bronze articles, nails, etc. Some of the material is
in the Museum. (1)
