Interpretation

    • The cut of the north to south trench [7019] was also linear in plan with a very gradual break of slope top with gently sloping sides and a concave base 5.87m long and 3.00m wide. It was also filled with a very fine sieved mid grey silty sand (7027) representing the last event in the stratigraphic sequence. Emma Dent’s interpretation of the mound was a Manor house that subsequently appeared on the 25” 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1884 (GCCHER: 2169). However, no trace of a Manor House was discovered during this excavation and what she discovered appears to be a later building more likely to be a banqueting house.
