Archaeologists discovered a late Iron Age/early Roman settlement along the route of the Highway Agency’s A453 widening scheme. The team from Wessex Archaeology identified the site as a farmstead dating from the 1st century BC to the 3rd century AD.
Finds from the site include the foundation of a stone building, human remains, and pots placed in pits in the ground. Remnants of household waste also survived, such as broken domestic pottery and discarded animal bone.
