Record Details

NHER Number:8910
Type of record:Monument
Name:Roman tesserae


At sometime prior to 1974 a number of possible Roman tesserae were reported at this location. If this identification was correct then it suggests that a Roman building might have existed somewhere nearby. Subsequent fieldwalking and metal detecting here in 1984 recovered a medieval pottery sherd and a post medieval coin.
