Full description

Valentin, J., 2009, Tiverton Eastern Urban Expansion Area. Archaeology and Cultural Heritage Assessment and Evaluation, 6,9, fig.11,14 (Report - Assessment). SDV345204.

Geophysical survey (Area 9) within the area where a number of flints have been found recorded two curvilinear features indicating possible prehistoric settlement or funerary activity. A number of linear features were also recorded which may represent ditches from former fields. A targetted evaluation trench (T10) on one of the curvilinear features found a slightly curving feature, probably a ditch, although curving the opposite way to that recorded during the geophysical survey. Two pieces of worked flint and a sherd of possible Neolithic pottery were recovered from the ploughsoil.
