Abstract: Excavation of the site was directed successively by Malcolm Dean in 1969 and M.S. Gorin in 1970 and 1971 (Archive site code: EPR 1969-71). The site lay 80m south of the River Gwash at SK 943 077, and 150m west of Site 3, where evidence of first and second century AD occupation preceded the Early Anglo-Saxon settlernent and cemetery. It was first identified during the excavation of Site 3 in 1967, when the line of the Romano-British stone trackway, recognised on that site, appeared to continue westwards into the adjacent field. Random fieldwalking detected a scatter of Roman pottery and building materials on the conjectured line of the trackway. [Opening paragraph]
