Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on land south of
Newark, Nottinghamshire for Waterman CPM Ltd. on behalf of Catesby
Property Group. The work took place over five weeks in August and
September 2008.
The evaluation revealed a concentration of Roman activity within the
north-west of the site, including a low stone wall and indications of the
presence of a probable kiln. The evidence suggests a small Roman
settlement in the area. A crouched burial associated with the settlement
was also found. Enclosures also dated as Roman were located within the
north-eastern corner and centre of the site, together with remnants of
Romano-British field systems to the south.
Localised spreads of burnt stone close to the Middle Beck within the
centre of the site are thought to be part of a small pre-historic ‘burnt
mound’ type deposit.
