Details:

A walk-over survey was undertaken on an area of Pawlett Hams in November 2003 prior to potential ecological improvement of the area. A desk top study further confirmed the following. A number of possible archaeological features, excellently preserved, were identified in an area already identifed as being rich in earthworks. The survey recorded an early system of flood banks which may have originated in the Roman or Saxon Period. An early field system was also identified, again possibly originating in the Saxon Period. The earliest feature is a possible Roman road with adjacent building platforms. A number of defunct water courses were also seen. {1}
