Description

The site of an Early Christian cemetery, part of which may still lie under a field and garden. The site was partly excavated in 1971, when burials of at least three phases were found associated with an earlier ditched enclosure. A stone inscribed with the name ERCAGNI was also found. The area that is scheduled is now occupied by two houses, a back garden and part of a field.

The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of early medieval burial practises It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structures themselves may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques.

The scheduled area comprises the remains described and areas around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
