Tabor, Jonathon 


The Iron Age remains at the site represent a settlement of some scale and an archaeological site of considerable importance. Whilst earlier prehistoric activity is limited to one Neolithic pit, activity at the site appears to have spanned the Iron Age period before declining in the Early Roman period. This potentially unbroken sequence of occupation, associated with substantial artefactual assemblages, has considerable potential in furthering our understanding of Iron Age settlement and its economy. In addition, the significant pottery and animal bone assemblages have potential in advancing specialist studies in these areas whilst the human bone assemblage should provide important insight into the treatment of the dead during the Iron Age.
