|Type of record:||Archaeology|
|Name:||Iron Age to Roman activity at Tatton village|
Archaeological investigations to the northeast of Tatton Old Hall identified only faint evidence of activity in the Iron Age to Roman period. Although initial reports from the excavations suggested a far greater distribution of activity from this period, the final interpretation was based on calibrated radiocarbon dating and comprised a single archaeological feature.
Far greater information on the landscape was obtained from pollen analysis suggestive of a prolonged period of woodland clearance from around 1500 BC until the Roman period and an corresponding increase in cereal cultivation over the same period.
