31 March 1988. Fenland Fieldwalking. Conditions Good, well weathered ploughsoil.
Concentration of pottery and briquetage (both sparse) in matrix of grey soil just south of Roman road. Over area of 24m north to south x 20m northwest to southeast. However, there is another spread of fragmentary briquetage and grey soil 38m to the southeast. This certainly due to the bulldozing of this field many years ago when first bought by
