Deeping Gate Trees, Market Deeping, Lincolnshire. An Archaeological Investigation.

Change log



Within an investigation area of c. 1.05ha a linear swathe of forty-two features was recorded that comprised a prehistoric settlement including a post-defined circular structure. Dating of the pottery is problematic, but covers a timeframe of the Late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age. This is confirmed by the fauna which includes both wild and domestic species as well as deposition of a special nature. By contrast, the worked flint assemblage is of a more certain Late Neolithic tradition. The significance of the assemblage to a local understating of prehistoric communities is undoubted, but its broader value may only be realised through scientific dating.
