Excavation undertaken in 1982 recovered evidence for habitation in the form of pits, an arc of small post-holes and a charcoal spread. Some of the pits contained Grooved Ware, lithics, charcoal and created bone, while others had varying amounts of flint debitage. The plough-soil yielded an archer's bracer and a range of struck and worked flint and chert including a tanged arrowhead. Radiocarbon dates for the activity range between 4305 ± 45 BP and 2275 ± 30 BP (King 1999, 157). (Moore 1987, no. 384; King 1999)
