Winscombe Archaeology

Great Wortice - Inspection of a ditch on the Winscombe/Banwell parish boundary, and later re-cutting of the ditch revealed a series of postholes which upon excavation appeared to be cut into pits associated with a curved ditch of possible prehistoric origin. The parish boundary has later utilised part of this ditch

 

Cemetery Field - The survey shows a number of circular enclosures, with indications of round houses within them. Several overlapping circular features are also evident. The existence of a number of banks and ditches, some clearly connected, indicate ancient field or other boundaries

 

Finds - Pottery from the late Iron Age to the 4th Century. Quern stones. Bone and antler. Three coins. Flint and stone tools. Lead pot mends.
