Tom Brindle, Post-Excavation Manager, Cotswold Archaeology.

In 2017 Cotswold Archaeology undertook an excavation which produced evidence for activity during the Iron Age and the Roman periods.  During the Roman period the site was on the periphery of a farmstead and in the later Roman period was used for burial.  The group of burials from the site are of particular interest providing evidence for a range of intriguing and in some cases rare burial rites.  This talk will present the excavated evidence from the site, in the regional and national context of Roman Britain.
