Excavation and survey work by archaeologists from Leeds University in 2003 have revealed a Romano-British settlement site surrounded by a complex field system. The site itself may have been occupied over a long period of time with finds dating to the Roman and early Medieval periods. These include a complete Romano-British rotary quernstone base, built into the floor of one of the excavated roundhouses and an early Medieval style iron knife.


No public access. Field systems below the site can be viewed from B6160 at Kirk Bank, 1 1/2 from Threshfield.
