Undated pit or natural feature on land south of Tennyson Drive, Bourne



Reference Name MLI80836

Name:
Undated pit or natural feature on land south of Tennyson Drive, Bourne

Summary:
Undated pit or natural feature on land south of Tennyson Drive, Bourne

Location:
BOURNE, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 35287
During an archaeological evaluation in early 2000 a series of amorphous features were interpreted as periglacial channels caused by melt water running into the fen basin. It was alternatively suggested that they might be localised quarry pits for clay extraction. Environmental sampling produced a few small fragments of charcoal and charred grain/pulse fragments. These could however have been transported down through the soil profile and are insufficient to conclude a cultural origin for the features.{1}{2}{3}
