Roman Settlement Evidence at the Former Holbury Infant School, Holbury, New Forest, Hampshire
A watching brief at Cadlands Primary School, formerly Holbury Infant School, Holbury, New Forest, was maintained during all ground reduction in advance of the construction of an extension to the existing school buildings. Roman features were uncovered, most notably three large pits and two possible hearths, partly enclosed within two ditches. Roman pottery and ceramic building material (CBM) assemblages recovered from the features date mainly to the period AD 270–325/350 and suggest much more substantial occupation in the immediate vicinity, possibly associated with a nearby Roman road.
