Recent work has revealed a Roman limestone building of a fairly low status, yet with a grand military style entrance, possibly built by an army veteran.  Excavation has revealed details of the enclosure complex revealed in an earlier evaluation, including a Roman stone building of villa form but lacking diagnostic features such as hypocausts/mosaics. Indeed, a lack of flooring or any roofing material indicates it was probably abandoned before being occupied, possibly around AD180. An adjacent Iron Age roundhouse settlement included the earliest securely-dated pottery kiln in Britain, dated to between 20 BC and 40 AD, and appears to have been abandoned at the same time.
