Description Roman pottery and tile visible in topsoil, which looks very black. Indicates the presence of some kind of Roman site, possibly settlement or burial site? <1>. Finds from area west of parish boundary included 108 coins, 9 brooches and a number of copper alloy objects. The coins ranged in date from the late C1 to the late C4, most being Constantinian (c.307-364 AD). Earlier coins include a few possible Flavian coins and radiates of 260-300 AD. The brooches are predominantly C1 and consist of a Nauheim derivative, the head of a Langton Down brooch, a Dolphin brooch, a Cochester brooch, a brooch head of Hawkes and Hill type XIII, a pennanular brooch of Fowlers type E, the head from a P-shaped brooch and part of a thin plate brooch. The copper alloy objects included a swans head mount of probable Roman date, a ring-key of probable 3rd or 4th century date. <2> <3> <4>. Photos of finds <5>. Site visit in early 1995: dark soil spread extends both sides of the parish boundary on a platform overlooking the stream to the east. Soil appears rich in organic remains and charcoal, and contains a concentration of Roman building remains including tegulae, imbrex and brick fragments and pottery sherds, indicating a possible villa site. <6> Two gold torcs found. <7>
