Finds within the confines of the village itself
|Mesolithic - 8000BC to 4000BC
Three sites have been identified. Finds include an assemblage of bladelets, scrapers and five flaked axes. The latter appear to be a transitional form between the Mesolithic and the Neolithic.
|Neolithic - 4000BC to 2400BC
No Neolithic enclosures have been found, however Neolithic artefacts have been found at two places.
|Bronze Age - 2400BC to 1800BC
There are six locations indicating Late Neolithic / Early Bronze Age settlements. There is also a ring ditch. All these finds are close to the village.
Oddly, there is no evidence yet found of any occupation during the Iron Age. Considering the evidence before and after the Iron Age this may be considered surprising.
There is an ancient route that follows Drove Road. The name itself indicates long usage as a drover's road (taking animals to markets, including London). This route,however, is very old, predating the Romans.
