Today we ventured out to the east of the county to survey near Little Hadham. We had done a little survey at the site last autumn but returned to examine a more fruitful looking field today. Many thanks to all who turned out, we had quite a large team. As we wanted to finish the area we knew contained features we worked on until 6pm. I think the results were worth the effort.
The surface finds included late Iron Age and Roman pottery and it looks like we have a small enclosed farmstead with an associated field system. Clearly the features go further to the south and east, and metal detector finds show that it continues to the west on the other side of the road. Previous survey suggests there is not much more, if anything, to the north.
The ridges from the cultivation show in the plot as the lines to running east-west, and there is a little stagger error, but nothing too bad. We can’t always survey on nice smooth parkland!
Another success for the CAGG team!
