Late Saxon features off Beck Road, near Castle Hill, Welbourn



Reference Name MLI91172

Name:
Late Saxon features off Beck Road, near Castle Hill, Welbourn

Summary:
Late Saxon features off Beck Road, near Castle Hill, Welbourn

Location:
WELBOURN, NORTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 65196
Trial trenches revealed evidence of late Saxon (9th-10th century) activity towards the east side of the site. The features uncovered include a substantial V-shaped ditch, at least one further ditch and the possible remains of an earth bank between them. It is thought that these features may have had a defensive function. Also, a pit was seen which was morphologically suggestive of a sunken floored building (grubenhauser) but it was shown to have been cut from high in the stratigraphic sequence so may be a later feature of uncertain function. {1}{2}
