Romano British saltmaking remains, Woodgate Farm, Moulton

A red hill and artefact scatter of pottery, baked clay fragments and evaporating vessel fragments suggest that this site was the location of Roman saltmaking.


Concentrations of Romano British pottery sherds were found in dark patches of wide silt hillocks among a wide scatter throughout the western group of enclosures. The pottery dates from the early 2nd century and into the 4th century within area of 22115. {1}
There is a 'red hill' (a Roman coastal site producing salt by boiling of seawater) on this site, with scatters of baked clay fragments, including support pieces, and evaporating vessel fragments. {3}
