Monument details

HER Number:1296
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Neolithic farming activity at Tatton village


Excavations at Tatton found evidence of brief Neolithic farming activity, with evidence of at least one structure based on an irregular group of post holes and a pit containg burnt material including grain. A scatter of flint artefacts from across the entire site of late neolithic/early bronze age tradition are probably associated. A radio carbon date of around 3500-2900BC has been given.
