Newtree Furlong, Guildford Road, Fetcham

Evaluation by T Munnery of SCAU revealed a prehistoric (probably late Neolithic or Bronze Age) pit, pottery of Iron Age date, and a section of an inhumation containing the lower half of a human skeleton of Saxon date. The surface of a possible linear feature was noted to be cut by the inhumation. The feature, and the majority of the inhumation were not excavated, but a whetstone and iron knife lying close to the skeleton pelvis were removed. A subsequent excavation revealed a total of 18 inhumations.

Excavation (1976) by K. Crouch for LAMAS and DOE revealed a RB occupation site of late lst/2nd century date, abandoned 3rd century with some reoccupation in the 4th.
