Title: Charred Plant Remains from Later Prehistoric Features, a Bronze Age Burnt Mound and Saxon Features at Willow Farm, Castle Donington, Leicestershire (XA14.1997)
Authors: Monckton, Angela
Issue Date: 16-Jul-2002
Presented at: University of Leicester
Abstract: Excavations were carried out by ULAS directed by Jon Coward in the South Area and Susan Ripper in the North Area (Coward and Ripper 1999) and samples were taken for the recovery of charred plant remains which can give evidence of diet, agriculture or activities on sites in the past. The features sampled included an Early Neolithic-Earlier Bronze Age pit containing numerous charred crab apples and other remains, Bronze Age and Saxon features in the South Area, and a Burnt Mound of Late Bronze Age date which was adjacent to a palaeochannel in the North Area. Palaeochannels were sampled for organic remains recorded separately. [Taken from introduction]
