|8/700bc-100bc||An Early Iron Age settlement site c400m to the NW of the ring ditch included 134 pits in the excavated area, of varying sizes, many intersecting, and some joined by gullies. Most appeared to be storage pits, but some may have been receptacles for water. There were also some post holes, and a prominent ditch with drainage gullies leading into it, which separated the pit group. Surviving pottery is of A2 type. [Akerman and Stone 1857, precise location unsure]. No human skeletal material was recorded.
Further pits and ditches were examined in 1941, and dated to the period by A2 sherds. [Bradford 1942]. No human skeletal material was recorded.
Further pits, post holes, round huts and ditches were examined in 1943, and similarly dated. [Riley 1947]. No human skeletal material was recorded.
