FLEMING, 1981, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV138910.

Site 'b'. Site of excavation at junction of one of the parallel reaves of the dartmeet system with venford reave. The terminal reave was shown to have been built in one style with a ditch on its southern side. In the settlement area a wooden house and a stone hut circle were investigated together with over 120 post and stake holes. Possibly the ancillary buildings of a bronze-age farmyard (fleming, 1981).
