Record Details

NHER Number:3980
Type of record:Monument
Name:Site of Roman bath house, metal working area and buildings and multi-period finds

Summary

This site has been subject to extensive investigations since the 1970s. Ploughing has uncovered the remains of a Roman bathhouse and other buildings, all of which were probably part of a small town. The presence of numerous Roman coins and metal objects also suggest that metalwork objects were being produced here.
Metal-detecting between 1979 and 2017 has also recovered Late Prehistoric lithic implements; Roman pottery; Iron Age, Roman and Late Saxon coins and undated and Bronze Age to post-medieval metal objects. The metal objects include undated copper alloy casting waste and a grotesque bust of a man; a Bronze Age awl and flat axehead; numerous Roman objects, including brooches, furniture fittings and a military harness mount; Early Saxon tweezers, girdle hanger fragment, brooch and hanging bowl fragment; a Middle Saxon pin; a Late Saxon bit link or harness link fragment; medieval to post-medieval dress accessories; a medieval brooch, casket key, scabbard chape, thimble and scale tang knife end cap; medieval/post-medieval copper alloy vessel fragments, a "paper-clip" rivet, pin and book mount and post-medieval clapper bell fragments, harness mounts, furniture mounts or escutcheons, a thimble, crotal bell, copper alloy weight and Jew's harp.
