Reading and dating roman coins
A somewhat restricted range and number of medieval finds was recovered, but together these suggest that occupation spanned the late 12th/early 13th century to the late 14th/early 15th century.
The finds include a notable group of medieval floor tiles and roof furniture.
Occupation during the Early to Middle Neolithic period was demonstrated by the recovery of assemblages of Plain Bowl and Peterborough Ware-style pottery, a rectangular ditched enclosure and numerous pit deposits.
A possible dispersed monument complex including two penannular ditched enclosures and one double ring ditch associated with rare and important remains of cremation burials is of contemporaneous Middle Neolithic date.

The excavations, carried out in 2007, revealed 82 inhumation graves and four cremation graves, in addition to the 33 inhumation graves discovered in 1974.A forecourt lay to the north and a courtyard with at least one ancillary building and a possible detached kitchen to the south.To the east was a complex of enclosures and pits and beyond this a fishpond.[insert link to web pages] Fieldwork was commissioned independently by Henry Streeter (Sand and Ballast) Ltd on the former ‘Imperial College Sports Ground’ and ‘Land East of Wall Garden Farm’ sites and by RMC Ltd – now CEMEX UK on ‘RMC Land’.The post-excavation analyses were combined further into a joint publication proposal by the Guildhouse Consultancy acting on behalf of both clients.
