Originator:Griffith, F. M.
Summary:In 1982 during drainage work observations made by Ms Griffith indicated that the site is considerably larger than had previously been thought. Large quantities of bone were visible in a culvert trench, which accords well with the 19th century account of 'cartloads of bones' and part of a small hearth was seen. The whole area of the Ham should be regarded as of potential archaeological significance. The main part of the site falls within the scheduled area of Bantham Camp and application to extend the area and include the site of these observations has been made.
