The Hollow Way

Recon at the site

The aim of this dig is to date both the Hollow Way and hopefully the field systems either side of it. So far we have everything from prehistoric worked flint, to medieval pottery, to a Victorian gin bottle.

We also have a metalled road surface (below), so it looks like the track was looked after. We can see it on the 1641 Norton map, but the finds suggest it is probably medieval in date.
