Type and Period (3)

  • HUT CIRCLE (Early Iron Age to Late Iron Age - 700 BC to 42 AD)
  • GULLY (Early Iron Age to Late Iron Age - 700 BC to 42 AD)
  • PIT (Early Iron Age to Late Iron Age - 700 BC to 42 AD)

Description

In the course of construction of the Eton Rowing lake, this site will be lost under the return lake of the rowing course. As a consequence, Oxford Archaeology undertook an area excavation calling the area 'Site 16'. An arc of gully surrounding a group of postholes on the S surounded by other Iron Age pits have been interpreted as a hut circle (B10).
