Description

Rocky Clump Stanmer Excavation Site


Upper Lodge Car Park, Ditching Road, Brighton & Hove, East Sussex


See an excavation of a late Iron Age to the later Roman period site. Join John Funnell on the 14th or John Skelton on the 21st.
Rocky Clump Stanmer - A site dating from the Late Iron Age to the later Roman period. The small farmstead and possible shrine is focused around a small copse of trees called Rocky Clump.
The excavations have revealed numerous features including post holes, pits and some very large ditches which form a rectangular enclosure. In 2018 evidence was found of a large granary building, and a deep grain storage pit with pottery confirming a Late Iron Age date for the enclosure. There have been finds of pottery, animal bones and two baby burials.
