Excavations of a Late Iron Age ditched enclosure.
Rocky Clump is a Romano-British site. Excavations in the field to the north of the copse of trees, called Rocky Clump, revealed pits, post holes and ditches dated from the 1st to the early 4th century AD. Excavations to the south of the copse have revealed an enclosure with ditches measuring 3 metres in width. Finds suggest that this is an earlier phase of the site and has produced Late Iron Age finds and some baby burials. The new excavations will investigate the east end of the enclosure and its complex entrance, and parts of the enclosure interior.
