Late Saxon ditches on land at The Old Station Yard, Kirton



Reference Name MLI91754

Name:
Late Saxon ditches on land at The Old Station Yard, Kirton

Summary:
Late Saxon ditches on land at The Old Station Yard, Kirton

Location:
KIRTON, BOSTON, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 13983
Two probable ditches of late Saxon date were encountered during a watching brief. A third undated ditch was sealed by the same topsoil that sealed the Saxon features, so may be contemporary. The pottery recovered consisted of small, abraded sherds, suggesting that dumping of domestic waste was taking place nearby. Fired clay fragments which may represent possible daub and floor surfaces were also found, tentatively suggesting the presence of a building in the vicinity. {1}{2}
