Intensive domestic occupation from c AD 50-5 was interrupted by the Boudican fire of AD 60/61 and construction of a temporary fort of c AD 63-85; possibly fort-related features on the site include clay-and-timber buildings, a large timber-lined water tank and a metalworking workshop.

Domestic activity then resumed, with 1st-century clay-and-buildings replaced by masonry structures in the 2nd and 3rd centuries.

Finds recovered include lorica segmentata armour fittings, dress accessories and a wealth of early Roman pottery.
