A number of pits; numerous postholes (although no definite buildings were identified); a gully, possibly representing a boundary; 2 hearths and a small cremation cemetery were found during excavations by BCMAS in July-September 1994. Finds indicate a possible origin in the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze, although the majority of the features seem to date from the Middle to Late Bronze Age (B1-2).
