A building was constructed on the edge of the Little Ouse valley in the 4th century, probably as a barn in the yard of a Romano-British farming establishment. It overlay other farmyard structures and, below them, land divisions and the ditches of a track. It is possible that these are the remains of a farm with its surrounding fields or paddocks, with the yard and finally the buildings expanding eastward into what had been open ground.
