An archaeologicøl evaluation. was undertaken by the Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) of 11.23 ha of land at Bowling Green Farm on behalf of Hills Aggregates Limited. Twenty-two
trenches, representing a 1% sample of the area proposed for mineral extraction, were excavated. These revealed considerable evidence of plough disturbance of the underlying geological strata, particularly to the underlying limestone on the higher ground to the south.
Several linear features of Roman date were located on the western side of the area, all sealed beneath a thick layer of hillwash.. These most likely represent outlying boundaries of the Roman. settlement located 200 m to the north. The most northerly of the trenches revealed a
recent field boundary, cut through the hill wash, containing 19th century refuse.
