Summary:
Possible Romano-British cemetery remains to the south of Chapel Lane, Navenby

Location:
NAVENBY, NORTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
63246
South of Chapel Lane at SK 99157 57576 (approx) two mid-late second century cremations contained in greyware urns were revealed, and a further one in a Nene Valley colour-coated ware funnel-necked beaker, dating to the third century, were excavated during a watching brief. An elongated pit-like feature was also revealed nearby which is believed to have a ritual function. It contained scored ware dating to the late Iron Age-RB period and horse bone. {1}{2}
Two Romano-British pits were identified during a watching brief south of Chapel Lane (SK 9917 5757). The most northerly of these pits contained what appeared to be finds clusters. On the north side there was a group of disarticulated animal bones and Romano-British pottery sherds, including a second century mortarium. The other group of finds consisted of second-third century pottery and horse vertebrae. Also in the fill of the pit was a footring base, fourth century Oxfordshire red colour-coated beaker and infant human tibia. The southernmost pit was smaller, and contained a single sherd of Romano-British pottery.
Part of a human femur was recovered from a possible enclosure ditch. Two of the Romano-British cremations were recorded 'within' it. {1}{2}
