Hob Uid: 316611
Location :
Grid Ref : SK4200090500
Summary : Possible Roman settlement consisting of Road material, walling, and C2nd to C3rd pottery.
More information : [SK 421 905.] Roman pottery of 2nd and 3rd century date,
walling, and road material, were found in 1947-8 during the
construction of a housing estate on Brinsworth Common, Miss. D. Greene considered the site to be a Roman settlement, but the pottery finds were disappointing.(1)

Miss Greene's interpretation of the finds (See map diagram for copy
of her plan) is the only evidence for a settlement. The area has
been built over and there is no surface evidence of a settlement.
No finds have been reported since 1948.
A few sherds of coarse ware (now in Rotherham Museum) were the only
pottery recovered during the operation; but its paucity may have
been due to the use of mechanical diggers. (2)
