Carbon Date. 995BC. Early Iron Age Carbon Dates

Report: St Osyth Lodge Farm- Charcoal; the sample came from a small cremation pit (3367), 0.80m wide and 0.55m deep, containing three deposits (3364, 3365, and 3366). Located in the middle of the site, halfway between the early Bronze Age pond barrow and the middle Bronze Age ring ditches. The samples have been extracted from the secondary fill 3365 - a very dark, almost black silt sand with frequent lumps and flecks of Charcoal. The fill occupies the central third of the feature and contains 1280g of cremated human bone. It also contains frequent lumps and flecks of carbonised material, which is assumed to have come from an associated (unlocated) pyre. The pit touches no other features, but has been truncated to a depth of 0.3m by modern ploughing. The pit cuts a glacio-fluvial drift deposit of acidic sand and gravel. The bottom of the pit was probably less than 1m above the watertable.

Report: Gwithian - carbonised residue; internal, decorated body sherd; the stratigraphy for the Gwithian Bronze Age sites (GMIX, GMX, and GMXV) was recorded as three broad sandy-soil occupation layers (3, 5 ,7, and 8) each separated by blown sand. Layer 3 (phase 5) was the uppermost occupation horizon. It comprised a small farming settlement of wooden circular buildings located and surrounded by fields. There was evidence for stock and arable farming alongside pottery, shale and stonework manufacture, as well as metalworking. The sample was recorded from the fill of a gully (343) which lay to the south of strcture (724/725). This structure is associated with the layer 3 horizon which represents a major occupation horizon: phase 5. The geology is slate bedrock with old land surfaces preserved beneath layers of sand and later occupation horizons.

Report: wood; from the bottom of a waterlogged deposit at the bottom of a Bronze Age well or watering hole. The context was a black organic loam, virtually stone free and was sealed by successive fills of gravelly clays and silts. Immediately above the waterlogged material and extending into the top stony part of it was a complete Deverel Rimbury Bucket Urn, broken in situ at the edge of the feature. The bottom of the waterlogged material was 2.65m OD beneath the sample and the top 3.10m OD; the sample was taken from the bottom 0.15m.

Report: The Rye area project: near surface site 1 (Old House Farm, Peasmarsh)- Sediment; organic, .71 - 3.75m OD; the sample comes from a 4cm slice of Sediment (20-24cm). The solid geology of the area around Old House Farm is the Hastings Bed Group (mainly sandstones, siltstones, and clays). The sample is taken from relatively close to the modern ground surface, suggesting there could be a possibility of contamination by modern rootlet penetration. However, all such rootlets were removed from the sample using forceps prior to submission. Pollen assemblages at this depth predominantly comprise open ground taxa (herbs, such as Poaceae and Cyperaceae) with smaller numbers of poor fen shrubs and herbs indicated by pollen from Betula, Myrica gale, and Alnus glutinosa. These indicate relatively open, oligotrophic local conditions at the time of Sediment deposition.

There was no physical relationships with other features. The context was sealed by topsoil, ploughed for at least the last 15 years. The topsoil was stripped prior to excavation and left exposed for two years. Resultant weed growth was cleared by mechanical removal of uppermost gravel surface, immediately prior to excavation. Underlying geology is acidic flint gravel, free-draining, and fine-fractioned.

Report: Gwithian - carbonised residue; internal, undecorated body sherd; at GMXV a 'layer 8' horizon was found. This is the earliest old land surface recorded during work on the Gwithian Bronze Age sites. The major feature of this early phase (phase 1) is a circular wooden building (1642), which lay within an early terraced field system. In 1960 an early archaeomagnetic date from the central hearth, centred on 1700 BC, was obtained. This radiocarbon sample came from a sherd found on the house floor (1507). Following the abandonment of the area, the site was sealed by sand and later cultivation layers in antiquity. The geology is slate bedrock and layer 8 has been described as a brown clay-loam immediately above the natural. In June 2005, layer 8 was re-exposed at site GMXVII when plough marks were found.

Report: The Rye area project: near surface site 1 (Old House Farm, Peasmarsh)- Sediment; organic, .61 - 3.65m OD; the sample comes from a 4cm slice of Sediment (30-34cm). The solid geology of the area around Old House Farm is the Hastings Bed Group (mainly sandstones, siltstones, and clays). Pollen assemblages indicate a local environment dominated by acid, nutrient-poor Betula fen. Alnus glutinosa and Salix spp. also appear to have been important components of the local vegetation community.

Report: St Osyth Lodge Farm- Human bone; femur; one piece of Charcoal and one piece of cremated bone come from the fill 3229 of middle Bronze Age cremation vessel. The cremation pit 3226, within which the upright vessel sits, is 0.56m long, 0.5m wide, and 0.09m deep, and is situated within the enclosed space of middle Bronze Age ring ditch 3336. Modern ploughing has truncated the cremation by 0.3m, and only the base and a small part of the sides of the pot survive. The feature cuts a large undatable pit 3287. The pit cuts a glacio-fluvial deposit of acidic sand and gravel and is sealed by 0.3m of sandy ploughsoil. The watertable was more than 1m below the base of the cremation pit.

Report: animal bone; from the centre of a pit fill of fine silt with medium to large flint and chalk fragments. The bone was recovered 18cm from the base of the ploughsoil (the field had not been ploughed since 1924 so there is a slight possibility of contamination from modern fertilizer). The pit cut through the middle chalk.

Report: Gwithian - carbonised residue; internal, decorated rim sherd; the stratigraphy for the Gwithian Bronze Age sites (GMIX, GMX, and GMXV) was recorded as three broad sandy-soil occupation layers (3, 5, 7, and 8), each separated by blown sand. Layer 3 (phase 5) was the uppermost occupation horizon. It comprised a small farming settlement of wooden circular buildings located and surrounded by fields. There was evidence for stock and arable farming alongside pottery, shale, and stonework manufacture, as well as metalworking. The sample was recorded from a midden deposit (433) which is associated with the layer 3 horizon and which represents a major occupation horizon (phase 5). The geology is slate bedrock with old land surfaces preserved beneath layers of sand and later occupation horizons.

Report: Hartshill Copse- Charcoal; sample recovered from the western half of the single fill of this feature 4461, a cremation within the entrance to the ditched enclosure. There was no physical relationships with other features. The context was sealed by topsoil, ploughed for at least the last 15 years. The topsoil was stripped prior to excavation and left exposed for two years. Resultant weed growth was cleared by mechanical removal of uppermost gravel surface, immediately prior to excavation. Underlying geology is acidic flint gravel, free-draining, and fine-fractioned.

Report: The Rye area project: Greyfriars- Peat; -0.55 - -0.59m OD; the sample was taken from the top of a unit of black well-humified peat (B), containing monocot stems and Woody detritus, and immediately below a contact with brown marine/intertidal clay (A). The solid geology of the area around Greyfriars is the Hastings Bed Group (mainly sandstones, siltstones, and clays). The watertable at the site is within 1m of the modern ground surface. The depth at which the sample is taken precludes any possibility of contamination by modern rootlet penetration. Pollen assemblages from the A/B contact are dominated by pollen of Myrica gale with lesser percentages of Cyperaceae and Poaceae. These indicate open, oligotrophic conditions at the time of peat accumulation. Microfossil studies indicate the A/B contact is transitional (ie non-erosive).

Report: Bestwall Quarry 2004-7 - carbonised residue; internal, Avon Stour style; from a segment of a ditch 1m long. The pottery came from the second of five fills. This layer comprised a mid-brown, charcoal-rich, sandy loam with frequent gravel nodules. In total, 28 sherds of pottery, weighing 449g, were retrieved from this layer. There was no intrusion or residuality. The local geology was valley gravels overlain by sandy acidic subsoils and topsoils. The upper part of the feature was cut into sand and the lower part into gravel. The feature was approximately 0.4m below present ground surface.

Report: Bestwall Quarry- Carbonised residue; internal; from the terminal of ditch (179). The cut had steep sides and a flattish base. The single fill was composed of a sandy loam with frequent Charcoal pieces, and pottery and worked flint. There was no evidence of intrusion or residuality. The local geology is valley gravels overlain by sandy acidic subsoils and topsoils. The feature was cut into gravely sand and was approximately 0.40m below the ground surface. There was no disturbance.

Report: Suffolk Rivers - waterlogged wood; unidentified fragments; .64m OD; this sample was taken from the base of a well-humified slightly silt peat unit, which is underlain by herbaceous well-humified peat. The underlying geology of the area surrounding Mickle Mere comprises predominantly of chalk, chalk till, and glaciofluvial drift and till. The stratigraphy and sedimentology of the deposits suggest the area initially infilled naturally through biogenic in situ sedimentation. Thin minerogenic horizons are present within the peat deposits, which may have been accumulated during periods of temporary catchment instability and floodplain flooding. The peat is capped by a layer of silt which is likely to have accumulated through floodplain deposition. The natural water table was located c 0.4m from the surface. Rootlet penetration was not evident within the core upon extraction.

Report: Geoarchaeology of the Trent tributaries - sediment; humin fraction, bulk sample; analysis of aerial photographs, LiDAR, and borehole records resulted in the identification of a major palaeochannel of the Idle on land owned by Fountains Farm. Following a number of prospection holes, a single gouge core (FN01) was drilled through the thickest part of the organic sequence and samples were recovered for environmental analysis and radiocarbon dating. This sample is from the top of the organic-rich silty clay and was immediately sealed by inorganic alluvium. The stratigraphy and sedimentology of the deposits within the ditch section suggest aggradation within a backswamp floodplain wetland of the River Idle. The sediments were moist throughout and the watertable was encountered at the base of the ditch, approximately 1.9m below the ground surface. With the exception of the upper 0.4m (modern topsoil development), no evidence of root penetration was observed in the recorded section.

Report: The Rye area project: Rye (Pannel Farm)- Peat; - 1.04m OD; this sample is taken from the top of a unit black well-humified turfa peat (B) containing abundant herbaceous rootlets and Phragmites rhizomes, and immediately below a contact with grey-brown marine/intertidal silts (A). The solid geology of the area around Pannel Farm is the Hastings Bed Group (mainly sandstones, siltstone, and clays). The watertable at the site is within 1m of the modern ground surface. The depth from which the sample is taken (178-80cm) precludes any possibility of contamination by modern rootlet penetration. Pollen assemblages from the A/B contact indicate relatively open fen carr vegetation existed around the site at the time peat was accumulating, and suggest that the contact between units A and B is transitional (ie non erosive).

Report: Bestwall Quarry- Carbonised residue; from a large oval, steep-sided, flat-based pit (G178). The fill was composed of sandy loam with Charcoal flecks and lumps of raw clay. Large quantities of abraded pottery were present, also a single shale spindle whorl. The pit was cut by a ditch section (G181). Regarding the pottery - there is no possibility of intrusion or residuality. The local geology is valley gravels overlain by sandy acidic subsoils and topsoils. The feature was cut into gravel and was approximately 0.35m from the ground surface. There was no disturbance.

Report: Gwithian - carbonised residue; internal, undecorated body sherd; the stratigraphy for the Gwithian Bronze Age sites (GMIX, GMX, and GMXV) was recorded as three broad sandy-soil occupation layers (3, 5, 7, and 8) each separated by blown sand. Layer 3 (phase 5) was the uppermost occupation horizon. It comprised a small farming settlement of wooden circular buildings located and surrounded by fields. There was evidence for stock and arable farming alongside pottery, shale, and stonework manufacture, as well as metalworking. The sample was recorded from a general deposit (576) which is associated with the layer 3 horizon and which represents a major occupation horizon (Phase 5). The geology is slate bedrock with old land surfaces preserved beneath layers of sand and later occupation horizons.

Report: The Rye area project: Roadend- Peat; .10 - 0.14m OD; the sample was taken from the top of a unit of black well-humified silty peat (unit B), immediately below a layer of grey-brown marine/intertidal clay (unit A). The solid geology of the area around Roadend is the Hastings Bed Group (mainly sandstones, siltstones, and clays). The watertable at the site is within 1m of the modern ground surface. The depth at which the sample is taken precludes any possibility of contamination by modern rootlet penetration. Pollen assemblages across the A/B contact are dominated by pollen of fen carr taxa (Betula, Salix, and Alnus). Rising pollen percentages for Myrica gale indicate the development of increasingly acid, oligotrophic conditions. A transitional (non erosive) contact between units A/B is indicated.

Report: Cheviot Quarry - charcoal; from posthole 316, underlying subsoil 002 and cut into natural gravel deposit 003. The posthole forms part of a circular structure (building 5), and is situated to the south-east of the circle. It contains sherds of Carinated Ware pottery. Residuality is possibly due to the unsealed nature of the context. The posthole is 0.4m from the surface, cut into fluvio-glacial gravel terrace deposits. There is some rootlet penetration and the feature was truncated by ploughing.

Carbon Date. 840BC. Early Iron Age Carbon Dates

Report: Ribble Valley - waterlogged plant macrofossil; bark, single fragment; the material is organic detritus from the base of a sequence of coarse sand to gravel flood deposits. The sequence was sampled from a core (CAL/C4) located in the centre of a palaeochannel with surface expression on the third Calder terrace. The surface geomorphology reveals the setting is a palaeochannel. The sample is taken from the base of the palaeochannel fill targeting the basal gravels at 2.45-2.33m. The material is detrital rather than in situ, but it comprises soft plant matter, probably locally derived and is likely to be similar in age to the flood deposit. The flood laminations are intact, which denotes little or no downwards penetration of organic materials. The datable material comes from the basal flood layer, and is buried by a further 2m of flood-laminated sands, silts, and clays. At the time of sampling the water table was at 0.25m beneath the surface, and based on iron and manganese discolouration probably oscillates around 0.5-0.75m below the surface. Organic flood trash of this type, where the character of plant remains (cell and tissue structure) is still discernible, is unlikely to pre-date the flood by more than 10-20 years.

Report: Gwithian - carbonised residue; internal, undecorated rim sherd; the stratigraphy for the Gwithian Bronze Age sites (GMIX, GMX, and GMXV) was recorded as three broad sandy-soil occupation layers (3, 5, 7, and 8) each separated by blown sand. Layer 3 (phase 5) was the uppermost occupation horizon. It comprised a small farming settlement of wooden circular buildings located and surrounded by fields. Evidence for stock and arable farming alongside pottery, shale, and stonework manufacture, as well as metalworking. The sample was recorded from 'cleaning of hearth' (the central hearth (1088) in posthole structure (1134)). The geology consists of slate bedrock beneath blown calcareous sand layers. Layer 3 represents a major occupation horizon: phase 5.

Report: charcoal; the sample comes from the lower filling of layer 2 of the central hollow. The layer provided no pottery evidence for dating and should immediately post-date the digging of the hollow whose major feature was a block or 'plinth' of over excavated chalk. This layer covered the floor of the hollow and postholes and pits. The latter digging into it and making feature 14, which provided OxA-2579.

Report: Hartshill Copse- Grain; sample recovered from southern half of the single fill of this feature, 1235, one of the postholes associated with roundhouse Structure C. No physical relationships with other features. Context sealed by topsoil, ploughed for at least the last 15 years. Topsoil was stripped prior to excavation and left exposed for two years. Resultant weed growth was cleared by mechanical removal of uppermost gravel surface, immediately prior to excavation. Underlying geology is acidic flint gravel, free-draining, and fine-fractioned.

Report: Bestwall Quarry 2004-7 - waterlogged plant macrofossil; the sample comes from a depth of 0.48m measured from the surface of the peat deposit. There was no intrusion or residuality. The local geology is valley gravels overlain by sandy acidic topsoils and subsoils. The waterlogged peat deposit was contained within the gravel horizon. Eighteenth- to nineteenth-century ceramic and stone land drains had been laid on top of the peat deposit. The sample was permanently waterlogged. Approximately 0.50m of topsoil had been removed.

Report: Cheviot Quarry - charcoal; Salix/Populus sp., single fragment; from posthole 2029, underlying subsoil 002 and cut into natural gravel deposit 003. The posthole is one of 19 within a sub-rectangular structure (building 1) and is situated in the centre of the northern long axis. Residuality is possible, given the unsealed nature of the context. The posthole is 0.4m from the surface, cut into fluvio-glacial terrace deposits. There was some rootlet penetration and it was truncated by ploughing.

Report: Bestwall Quarry 2004-7 - waterlogged plant macrofossil; -1.07 - -0.97m OD Crataegus cf. laevigata (fruit stone); the sample was obtained from a monolith column in the peat deposit at a depth of between 1-1.10m below the stripped surface. There was no evidence for disturbance or intrusion. The local geology was valley gravels overlain with sandy acidic topsoils and subsoils. The waterlogged peat feature was contained within the gravel horizon. Eighteenth- to nineteenth-century field drains had been laid on top of the peat deposit. Approximately 0.5m of topsoil had been removed.

Report: Cheviot Quarry - charcoal; from posthole 348, underlying subsoil 002 and cut into natural gravel deposit 003. The posthole forms part of a circular structure (building 4), and is situated to the south-east of the circle. Residuality is possible due to the unsealed nature of the context. The posthole is 0.4m from the surface, cut into fluvio-glacial gravel terrace deposits. There is some rootlet penetration and the feature was truncated by ploughing.

Report: Burlescombe - charcoal; unidentified, single fragment; from a monolith taken through a series of colluvial deposits sealing most of the features on site. Due to the depth of deposits overlying this material there is no chance of intrusive material or residuality. The local geology is gravel. The spread of material immediately overlies the water table (the interface of this context and the underlying ones representing the level of the water table). The context was undisturbed and unbioturbated. The pH is likely to be slightly alkaline (approximately pH 6.5) although exact parameters are unknown.

Report: Cheviot Quarry - charcoal; from posthole 308, underlying subsoil 002 and cut into natural gravel deposit 003. The posthole forms part of a circular structure (building 5), and is situated to the south-east of the circle, forming one side of an entranceway. Residuality is possible due to the unsealed nature of the context. The posthole is 0.4m from the surface, cut into fluvio-glacial gravel terrace deposits. Some rootlet penetration and truncat by ploughing also occurred.
