Area 4 – Apr-May 2000

Map of all features in Area 4Map of all features in Area 4A large number of features dating to the mid/late Bronze Age (1500-700 BC) were identified within this phase of excavation. These suggest activity in the area over a long period of time, possibly in the form of seasonal encampment. Two large ditches may represent the remnants of field boundaries or enclosures and over 60 pits, which form 3 discreet groups (A,B,C on the plan). These may be the result of 3 different episodes of short-term use.
