Coldharbour Quarry, Thorpe

Excavation by P Riccoboni of ASE in advance of mineral working on the site. Along with some undated features, four large pits of an apparent Late Bronze Age date were interpreted as waterholes, one of which showed evidence for having been recut and re-used in the Roman period. A series of linear features of Roman date crossed the site, probably representing evidence of the remains of a field system. The foundations of a T-shaped probable corn-drying structure, again of Roman date, were also revealed.
