In August 2019 Oxford Archaeology undertook an 18-trench evaluation at
Cross Levels Way, Eastbourne, East Sussex, on behalf of Morgan Sindell Group
for a proposed new Primary School. The evaluation revealed a late prehistoric
landscape of field systems, enclosures, pits, postholes, trackway and a
possible roundhouse. The features were found associated with a rich flint and
pottery assemblage of middle-late Bronze Age date. Flints and pottery of
probable Neolithic date were also present as was a limited concentration of
Mesolithic lithic material. The evaluation featured very dense disturbed lithic
scatters in the subsoil but did not reveal any in situ material. A possible buried
soil was also revealed during the evaluation that may have higher potential to
preserve in situ remains. Based on the results of the evaluation the site was
the focus of middle-late Bronze Age activity possibly related to a farmstead
along the edges of the former tidal inlet of the Willingdon Levels.
