This site is associated with a number of other Beaker sites in the immediate area. The surface finds and excavated areas seem to be grouped in distinct clusters, although it is difficult to establish the exact relationship between them. Although the features recorded are not enough to imply a permanent settlement, the finds recovered indicate that Beaker activity in this area was more than a temporary occupation site.
See (S2) and (S3) for more details.
