Situated on a slight gravel ridge. Archaeological testing (97E0389) of a road improvement scheme uncovered the inhumed remains of three males and one female aligned W-E. One burial produced a C14 date of 1694 +-37 BP (Cal. AD 414-532). Further testing during 1998 recovered another inhumation 75m to the SE. A single male, aged 17-25, was lying supine W-E in a grave-cut (dis 1.38m E-W; 0.52m N-S; D 0.28-0.36m) c. 1m below present ground level. It produced a C14 date of 446+-46 (Cal. AD 1425-1461) demonstrating that it was unconnected with the earlier burials. (Murphy 1998, 2000) Compiled by: Michael Moore Date of upload: 22 October, 2018
