Full description

A geophysical survey of six sample areas was carried out at Eastfield Farm in 1996.

Area 2B was located to the north of the farm buildings, and was targeted on the probable course of Ermine Street. Modern magnetic disturbance was evident, but several linear anomalies and also some pit-type anomalies could be distinguished. They may have been Roman-British, or possibly modern drains or field boundaries. The expected alignment of Ermine Street was not detected. [1]

Humber Field Archaeology carried out a watching brief during the installation of electricity cables at Eastfield Farm in 1997. This was in the same area as the geophysical survey the previous year.

In the central part of Trench 1, area SE94472123, the position of a possible building was indicated by an area of grey, clayey sand containing limestone. It was associated with animal bone, oyster shell, and a concentration of pottery.

The 39 sherds were identified by a pottery specialist as consistently 2nd century AD, probably from the first half of that century. [2]
