Full description

RECORDS FOR FLEET MARSTON ROMAN TOWN RE-ORDERED. SEE CASS 00656, 00853, 01025, 06140 & 06223 FOR RECORDS RELATING TO EACH CONSTITUENT LAND PARCEL.
Geophysical surveys carried out by Pre-Construct Geophysics between January and May 2009 identified a dense concentration of pits and ditched property boundaries in Fields 8 and 9, representing part of the Roman settlement and possible boundary ditches defining the northern extent of the settlement. The enclosures appear to be laid out at right angles to a side road, but to be cut obliquely by Akeman Street. See report for detail (B7).
